Poster | AERA 2017 Poster: Comparisons in U.S. and Chinese Elementary Classrooms
Click image to see poster. Abstract Purpose of Study: Comparison plays a critical role in the cognitive process (Goldstone, Day, & Son, 2010; Kotovsky & Genterner, 1996), and supports effective learning of mathematics (Ritter-Johnson & Star, 2009; Star & Ritter-Johnson, 2009). Although comparisons are widely used in US classrooms, they are often used with minimal efficiency (...

Poster | AERA 2017 Poster: Building Teacher Teams: Evidence of Positive Spillovers From More Effective Colleagues
Click image to see poster. Abstract Objectives: An emerging body of research suggests that student achievement is a function not just of one’s own classroom teacher but of the combined effort of the classroom teacher and others with whom he or she works. Despite this initial evidence, our understanding of teacher peer effects lacks clarity and detail. Failure to recognize the format of spillovers...

Poster | AERA 2017 Poster: Beginners' Skills With Interpreting Students' Thinking: Preservice Teachers' Inferences and Their Use of Supporting Evidence
Click image to see poster. Abstract Objectives: In many contexts, teacher education is being designed to focus more directly on the practice of teaching which entails focusing much more on doing key aspects of the work. In this context, it is particularly important to appraise teaching practices that have been shown to be pivotal in supporting learning, like assessment (Black & Wiliam, 1998...

Project | CAREER: Designing and Enacting Mathematically Captivating Learning Experiences for High School Mathematics
This project explores how secondary mathematics teachers can plan and enact learning experiences that spur student curiosity, captivate students with complex mathematical content, and compel students to engage and persevere (referred to as "mathematically captivating learning experiences" or "MCLEs"). The study will examine how high school teachers can design lessons so that mathematical content...
