  • Volume 29 Issue 1/2 - The evolution of the professional development of
           principals in Hong Kong: Value interpretation of the policy text
    • Abstract: Leung, Yick-Wah
      School principals always play a crucial role in school management. The professional development of principals (PDP) is not only good for school operation, but also the key to effectively implementing education reform. However, in Hong Kong, little attention has been paid to the policies about PDP. To close the research gap, this study has thoroughly reviewed relevant documents in the past 30 years to identify the changes of policy objectives, strategies, and relations among different stakeholders. From the literature, three distinct trends are identified: (a) the policy objective has changed from the passive approach to problem solving in schools to preparing for future challenges; (b) diversified professional activities and school-based analysis have become key components beyond official training programs; (c) the professional community of principals has taken over the dominant role of the government in the design of pre-service and in-service preparation and development programs. In conclusion, PDP policy has undergone significant changes in its objectives and strategies; it has become mature enough to face potential challenges of the rapidly changing environment.

  • Volume 29 Issue 1/2 - Perceptions of Hong Kong physical education teachers
           on teaching games for understanding: Implications for continuing
           professional development
    • Abstract: Ha, Amy S; Wang, Lijuan; Collins, John
      The study examined the perceptions of physical education (PE) teachers in Hong Kong and the applications of Teaching Games for Understanding (TGfU) in their respective schools. Using a qualitative approach, this study invited 20 PE teachers for individual semi-structured interviews. Deductive data analysis was utilized to identify unique themes in the broad aspects of teacher perception. Based on concepts adopted from cognitive constructivism and social constructivism, we examined teachers' views on adopting TGfU. Teachers stated that TGfU provided group discussion and communication opportunities among students. However, they are not confident in modifying equipment, space and rules to make TGfU more meaningful due to limited contact time with students and large class sizes. In conclusion, professional development of TGfU should emphasize more demonstrations of TGfU teaching methods and experience sharing among teachers.

  • Volume 29 Issue 1/2 - Urban high school physical education: A synthesis of
           the literature in academic journals (2003-2013)
    • Abstract: Lackman, Jeremy; Chepyator-Thomson, Jepkorir Rose
      With increasing worldwide migration, and the United States experiencing growth in major cities, greater numbers of diverse students are predominantly featured in urban schools. Physical education is an area of school curriculum that experiences the direct impact of urban diversity. The purpose of this literature-based study was to examine research that helps inform physical education curriculum and prepare teachers for professional engagement in schools. Data collection involved the online ProQuest Physical Education Index database of a southern university's library to search articles from 2003-2013. Four phases were used in data collection. Phase I concerned selection of English-only peer-reviewed articles, yielding 112 articles. Phases II and III involved use of constant comparison method (Keener and Bargerhuff, 2006) to determine the relevance of articles to the study. Of the 112 articles, researchers found 26 articles to analyze for emergent themes (phase IV). Findings of the study revealed the following themes: limited research on urban physical education, impact of professional development on urban teachers, urban youth and access to physical activity environments, physical activity levels of urban youth, personal and emotional paradigms, and curricular programming and perspectives. The article concludes with suggestions for change to curricular offerings in physical education in urban contexts.

  • Volume 29 Issue 1/2 - Different ways that preschool teachers taught
           children to write Chinese characters in Hong Kong classrooms
    • Abstract: Lam, Ho-Cheong
      This study aimed to explore how preschool teachers teach children to write Chinese characters. The method used in this study was inspired by phenomenography. Specifically, the author videotaped and analyzed the ways that three preschool teachers taught their children to write the same set of eleven Chinese characters. The analysis focused on how the teachers enacted the same object of learning (i.e., the writing of the 11 characters) differently in the classrooms. Pre- and post-tests were administered to determine how well the children learned to write the characters after the teaching of their teachers. Seven teaching strategies that the three teachers used to teach their children to write the characters were identified. Interestingly, an inconsistency was found among the three teachers' understandings of the correct ways to write the characters. This study expands the understanding about possible ways for teaching preschool children to write Chinese characters, which are practically useful for the professional development of preschool teachers.

  • Volume 29 Issue 1/2 - Moderating effect of mindfulness on daily
           hassles-stress relationship
    • Abstract: Leung, Johnny; Wu, Joseph
      This study examined the association of mindfulness (as a trait subject to individual difference) to stress and its role in moderating the daily hassles-stress relationship with Chinese university students. Respondents high in trait mindfulness reported lower levels of stress. A moderating effect of trait mindfulness on the daily hassles-stress relationship was found. Specifically, the direct association between daily hassles and stress was weakened at a heightened level of trait mindfulness. It provides empirical support for advocating the use of mindfulness training in buffering and redirecting negative emotion of Chinese university students in stress management. As Chinese university students are a large population of students in the world, integrating mindfulness-based training into the campus life of this group of students could bring benefits to their mental health.

  • Volume 29 Issue 1/2 - Geometric thinking levels of pre- and in-service
           mathematics teachers at various stages of their education
    • Abstract: Patkin, Dorit; Barkai, Ruthi
      This study investigated the geometric thinking levels (GTLs) of pre- and in-service mathematics teachers at various stages of their education in Israel. It focused on the first three GTLs according to van Hiele's theory. Furthermore, it examined whether there are differences in their mastery of GTLs in three main geometric topics. The results indicate that the GTLs of pre-service teachers at their third and fourth years of education were similar to those in-service teachers studying for a master's degree in mathematics education. The GTLs of pre-service teachers in their first year and those of academics making a career change to mathematics teachers were the lowest. All the five participating groups demonstrated higher mastery of GTLs in triangles and quadrilaterals than in circles and three-dimensional geometric figures. In addition, regarding triangles and quadrilaterals, a large number of participants demonstrated that they had mastered the third level of geometric thinking. Fewer participants assimilated the third level in circles. All participants were not versed in the two higher levels three-dimensional geometric figures. Most of them internalized only the first level or not even that level at all. The rest of them were diagnosed as "inconsistent" in mastering the GTLs.regarding

  • Volume 28 Issue 1/2 - Teaching solitude: Sustainability and the self,
           community and nature while alone
    • Abstract: Stern, Julian
      Research on the nature of schools has demonstrated the significance of relationships and dialogue in creating more inclusive learning communities. However, some children and adults report that they feel most included when left alone. This article sets out to consider aloneness in schools and, in particular, ways of encouraging and enabling healthy solitude and also to serve as stimulus for empirical research in schools. Implications for practice are included.

  • Volume 28 Issue 1/2 - Socially intelligent intercultural education
    • Abstract: Latsone, Lasma
      In this article the concept of social intelligence in intercultural education classes was explored as it can contribute toward forming a more tolerant and sustainable society. Specifically, a qualitative research study was conducted with 74 preservice first-year Latvia university students (emerging teachers) and 25 master-level in-service students (teachers and social workers). The aim was to discover students' understanding of social intelligence and its applicability for lessening ethnic tensions and forming positive relationships in a multicultural environment. Guided small-group discussions were facilitated, and the written responses received from the participants of discussion groups were summarized and analyzed. Participant response trends indicated that most of the student suggestions about how to diminish ethnic tensions in their surroundings were actionoriented and closely linked to skills and competences related to social intelligence. It also revealed the need for educators to consider how to promote through the teaching process such qualities as tolerance, respect, kindness, care and empathy, which are essential for successful social and intercultural interactions. Implications for practice are briefly discussed.

  • Volume 28 Issue 1/2 - Sustaining professional school counseling through
           viable accountability practices
    • Abstract: Sink, Christopher A; Moore, Lauren D
      This article focuses on the key issues of school counselor accountability and the promotion of student learning. The authors contend that without datadriven practices required by comprehensive school counseling programs, American and Asia Pacific school counselors' credibility with the public will remain equivocal. To make the case, the educational and school counseling context for accountability is first discussed. Second, they explore the various definitional and professional issues related to accountability. Third, the major benefits of having an accountability system in place are summarized. Finally, the research is reviewed examining counselors' accountability attitudes and actions. Implications for practice are briefly elucidated.

  • Volume 28 Issue 1/2 - The importance of school library programs for
           increased academic achievement and sustainable education in the United
           States
    • Abstract: Strong, Cynthia
      Within the discipline of library science, over 20 research studies have been done in the United States attesting to how high-quality school library programs contribute to improved academic achievement. On the other hand, in the fields of education, school counseling, administration, school leadership and so on, there is a dearth of scholarship and recognition of the positive impact librarians and library media programs have on student success. This conceptual article first presents an overview of the empirical research on school library programs and the positive impact they have on the academic achievement of students in the United States. Second, the argument is made that if education is to remain sustainable, it is essential that collaborative relationships are developed between school librarians and other personnel within school buildings.

  • Volume 28 Issue 1/2 - Unleashing sustainable leadership in schools: The
           paradox of distributed leadership
    • Abstract: Williams, Tracy
      Educational leadership might approach more sustainable practices that allow educators to serve students when employing strategies that focus energy on solutions within the whole of a group of school leaders rather than on the talent of an individual. Situated in the body of research on distributed leadership, this research leverages qualitative data from interviews with leaders in distributed settings to analyze the shifts needed to enact leadership in ways that reach the improvement goals of the school, and delineates how teacher leadership is situated in a distributed frame. Initial findings from an ethnographic study of teacher leaders' roles reveal barriers that may limit the capacity of an educational organization to meet the needs of the learners. The principles of distributed leadership, when approached in school settings, are well suited to the learning goals of these organizations, and may foster not only leadership development, but increase the longevity of the teaching staff as well, promoting stability in neighborhood schools.

  • Volume 28 Issue 1/2 - Improving sustainability: What can education learn
           from other complex systems'
    • Abstract: Bottery, Mike
      This article is concerned with the causes of unsustainability in complex systems, and what educators can learn from such a study. It argues that there are a number of similar stressors in many complex systems. The systems chosen to illustrate this argument are the educational, the environmental, and the financial, and the stressors described are the excessive exploitation of resources and the introduction of pollutive substances, practices or ideas. Such stressors, it is argued, lead to crisis points in all three systems, as actors within them are increasingly unable to adapt to the rapid changes they cause. Finally, because these systems share similar characteristics, this article argues that educators can learn much from the existence of similar remediations.
