Author: LeAnn G. Putney
Publisher: Rowman & Littlefield
The Association of Teacher Educators (ATE) Yearbook XXIV offers 16 captivating chapters related to establishing a sense of place or belonging for P-12 students, classroom teachers, teacher candidates, and teacher educators.
This book offers essential insights into the challenges and complexities surrounding the medium of instruction (MOI), its impact on all languages and stakeholders in multilingual contexts, educational processes, developments and outcomes. MOI has been a prominent topic in recent debates on the role of languages in education in multilingual contexts, partly because prioritizing one language over others as the medium of instruction has a profound impact on all languages and stakeholders in multilingual contexts. These include, to name but a few, (language) teachers, teacher educators, students, and policymakers, as well as industries and enterprises built around the needs and expectations of these stakeholders. This book presents high-quality empirical research on education in multilingual societies. It highlights research findings that, in addition to providing descriptions of language learning, development and use in language contact and multilingual contexts, will help shape future language education policy and practices in multilingual societies.

The World Education Research Association (WERA) is an association of major national, regional, and international specialty research associations dedicated to advancing education research as a scientific and scholarly field. WERA undertakes initiatives that are global in nature and thus transcend what any one association can accomplish in its own country, region, or area of specialization. ______ Reflective of the latest trends in education research, this inaugural volume of the World Education Research Yearbook captures the diverse concepts and various arenas of inquiry that are engaging education researchers across the globe. Comprised of nine chapters, the 2015 Yearbook brings together some of the most accomplished and emerging scholars in the field, from a breadth of universities and research institutions in the United States, Europe, Australia, Asia, and South America. The Yearbook opens with the Presidential Address given at the 4th WERA Focal Meeting by Yin Cheong Cheng, who proposes a new paradigm of educational reform to address the challenges impressed upon educators by the increased globalization of the modern world. Subsequent chapters make vivid the strengths of research with a broader work view. Chapter contributions shift the discourse through a global lens, addressing such topics as how international children’s TV can be used to further global health education and awareness, strategies for remedying low academic achievement among marginalized social and culture groups, and a new global model designed to aid countries in developing more effective indicators of quality education. The 2015 World Education Research Yearbook is a crucial and long-awaited contribution to the field of education research. Its relevance extends beyond the borders of any single country or continent to encompass a worldwide perspective on educational developments which are of great value to researchers, educators, and students alike.
The book, the tenth volume in the series of yearbooks by the Association of Mathematics Educators in Singapore, comprises 14 chapters written by renowned researchers in mathematics education. The chapters offer mathematics teachers a cache of teaching ideas and resources for classroom instruction. Readers will find various task design principles, examples of mathematical tasks used in classrooms and teaching approaches to implement the tasks. Through these discussions, readers are invited to reflect and rethink their beliefs about mathematics teaching and learning in the 21st century, and reexamine the tasks and activities that they use in the classroom, in order to bring about positive impact on students' learning of mathematics. This book contributes towards literature in the field of mathematics education, specifically on mathematics instruction and the design of mathematical tasks and activities.
