This white paper, Researching Invention Education, compiles contributions from a community of individuals and organizations working in Invention Education (IvE) in the United States. IvE is a term that refers to the practice of teaching students how to problem-solve and think like inventors in order to become positive change-makers in the world. Th...
Invention Education (IvE) is a term that refers to deliberate efforts to teach people how to approach problem finding and problem solving in ways that reflect the processes and practices employed by accomplished inventors. The term has been used by individuals and organizations to describe educational programs that date back more than a decade. Res...
Science learning environments should provide opportunities for students to make sense of and enhance their understanding of disciplinary concepts. Teachers can support students’ sense-making by engaging and responding to their ideas through high-leverage instructional practices such as formative assessment (FA). However, past research has shown tha...
With recent advances in the achievable resolution of electron microscopes, a direct method for demonstrating the atomic structure of solid crystals is available. Microscopy Camp was designed to introduce and reinforce current, scientifically acceptable concepts of the atomic structure of solid crystals. Ten middle school students attended Microscop...
The Microscopy Camp program was developed to introduce or reinforce concepts of atomic structure through the use of high-resolution transmission electron microscopy (HRTEM) and provide experience to graduate students interested in careers in science education. In August 2005, ten middle school age students attended Microscopy Camp 2005 at Universit...
This study investigates differences in eighth-grade mathematics students' engagement in standards-based curriculum and instruction practices between block- and traditional-schedule schools. Survey data were gathered from 156 middle level mathematics teachers to access the use of standards-based cur riculum and instruction practices in their classro...
