Getting Started | Background Information | Reference Material

Reference Material in the form of subject dictionaries, encyclopedias, and handbooks typically provide background essays, definitions, broad overviews of various topics, or other pertinent facts. A collection of searchable eReference titles like Sage eReference.

Topics:

 

Incorporating social and emotional learning into classes.

Giving students more choice and say in their schedules and schools providing more opportunities for learning in specialized areas.

What types of artmaking benefits people with mental-health conditions more.

Bilingual education: How does a 50/50 two-way model support a minority student population?

How and who selects what subjects to teach in what languages throughout the grade levels? (As bilingual educators we hope to learn if teaching a subject in a specific language affects the learning outcomes of the students).

Why school districts with minority students stick with the 90/10 bilingual education model instead of embracing both languages equally throughout their education. --  90/10 refer to second language learning or ESL?

Sustainable education

How dress code, or lack thereof, affects student performance—particularly related to gender, race, sexuality, class, body type, etc.

The cognitive effects physical education has on a student who has class in the morning versus in the afternoon.

If standardize testing is a fair measurement, like the Fitnessgram Pacer Test. -- by "fair" do you mean bias? do you also mean "high stakes tests"?

School’s teaching to the test and why they think it is so important.
