In this study, the authors report the results of a two-year ethnography study of a teaching practicum in Brazil based on the coteaching | cogenerative dialoguing model. This study shows that the practicum does not have to be a mere induction experience, but that it also may be the transformative locus for (a) the practicum participants (new teachers, school teachers, teacher educator, and students) and (b) school and university/school relationships, and (c) of the practicum activity itself.

Creating Learning Opportunities for Teachers and Students: A Cultural-Historical Understanding of Classroom Research
In this article, the authors propose cultural-historical activity theory as a framework for understanding the opportunities that arise for students and teachers from the presence of researchers in the classroom. They analyze three vignettes from their research in elementary mathematics classrooms for the purpose of illustrating a cultural-historical activity theoretic explanation of the interaction. Finally, the authors suggest that the “impact” of research can be increased at least locally when participants capitalize on the opportunities that arise for teaching and learning when researchers are present.

Fostering Pre-service Teachers’ Self-Determined Environmental Motivation Through Green Chemistry Experiments
This study was designed to test the hypothesis that a green chemistry curriculum changes Malaysian pre-service teachers’ environmental motivation. Two comparable groups of pre-service teachers participated in this study. Posttest results indicate that there is significant difference between both the groups for intrinsic motivation, integration, identification, and introjections scales and no differences for external regulation and amotivation scales.

The mediation by teachers of the many activity systems that constitute any given class has traditionally been an ignored aspect of teaching. In this paper the authors argue that the teacher's responsibility for this mediation exists and must therefore be accounted for in the praxis of teaching. In addition, the authors argue for the cogenerative dialogue as one viable solution for teachers to mediate in an ethically responsive manner.

The authors describe an evolving theoretical framework that has been called one of the best kept secrets of academia: cultural-historical activity theory, the result of proposals Lev Vygotsky first articulated but that his students and followers substantially developed to constitute much expanded forms in its second and third generations.
