This study used multivariate path analysis to examine how differences in elementary teaching candidates’ perceptions of the quality of their experiences in mathematical content courses, mathematical methods courses, and clinical placements interacted with their learning opportunities to seem to affect their mathematical knowledge for teaching, self-efficacy with regard to teaching mathematics, and pedagogical beliefs about mathematics.
A significant body of research on gender and sexual diversity in education has called on teachers to “move beyond inclusion” of LGBTQ+ voices in curriculum by queering their practice and “disrupting cis-heteronormativity.” In this case study, we focus on patterned moves that Laura, a first-grade teacher, made to disrupt cis-heteronormativity by supporting her students to cultivate what we call a “queer mindset”—a way of thinking, feeling, doing, that “rattles” her students’ common sense.
This article details how technology integration can be supported by distributed leadership practices.

Using the International Baccalaureate’s (IB) high school music curriculum as an entry point, this article examines the kind of “international” student that the IB claims to produce. It argues that the IB’s conception of the music student, while seemingly neutral and universal, relies on modern Euro-American ways of being and thinking based on Enlightenment notions of reason, the nation, and progress. In addition, it explores how such tropes discursively produce difference and exclusion.
