Fall 2016 Catalyst The Magazine of the UC Davis School of Education
In the Fall 2016 issue of Catalyst magazine, we take an in-depth look at how educators can nurture English learners’ emerging bilingualism, particularly in the wake of passage of Proposition 58 in California. We also talk with Paul D. Hastings, the School of Education’s Interim Dean; examine a teacher-driven approach to bringing wonder to math and science learning; and visit with an alumni couple who live in a 180-square-foot house.

In addition, the School of Education’s Susan O’Hara and two others recently published a chapter entitled “Using new technologies to engage and support English language learners in mathematics classrooms” in Cases on Technology Integration in Mathematics Education.
