This volume presents some of the latest research conducted in the field of education. Chapter One evaluates the efficacy of a sequence developed to teach the concept of the mole, which is important in stoichiometry, to eleventh-grade students. Chapter Two offers lesson ideas for the S.T.E.A.M. teacher that can be completed with students virtually using items that can be found at home or acquired for a minimal cost. Chapter Three includes research on how academic staff development had been implemented in response to reforms in Vietnamese higher education. Chapter Four characterizes the latency time to produce handwriting of high frequency words in students with dyslexia. Lastly, Chapter Five reports on a study that focuses on classroom teachers and their bilingual skills in preparation for the challenge of teaching in Spanish and English.
