Progress in Education. Volume 37


Roberta V. Nata (Editor)

Series: Progress in Education
BISAC: EDU037000

The ongoing Progress in Education series presents substantial results from around the globe in selected areas of educational research. Schools are institutions that sail in the tempest of educational issues, reforms, strategies, data and tools, as well as reflect changes in society. Embedded in all of these are technology, diversity, and innovation – their inevitability has been demonstrated in our schools and communities. The first chapter of this volume examines how technology and diversity leads to innovation.

The following chapters discuss the integrity of peer coaching and self-regulated learning; errors and error-handling strategies; career and technical education in Texas schools; high school sizes and Hispanic student college readiness; pedagogical approaches to applying funds of knowledge theories to support minoritized students’ learning; electrical engineering education programs; and instructional expenditures and school district wealth.
