In search of Bhabha (1990), availability of new identities possibilities became at hand as a result of fragmentation, shifts in course of identification and multiplicity. The concept ‘third space’ seems to be relevant to my study since the classroom offers different possibilities of identity to participants, as they establish innovative linguistic repertoires, expressly, participants can acquaint themselves and be recognized in means that were not available to them before. Choosing to analyze classroom discourse in connection with identity is due to reason that classrooms are places of tensity among what Bakhtin (1981: 272) calls ‘centripetal’ and ‘centrifugal’ forces which offer possibility for alternation and
In every institution, academicians are trying to increase the effectiveness of learning through a variety of teaching approaches. Over the last three decades, one of the pedagogical practices that has attracted much attention to the world of education is cooperative approach. Cooperative learning has become quite an internationally known area among social researches (Slavin, 2011). It is considered to be far more effective compared to lecture-based teaching ( Tran & Lewis, 2012a; Tran & Lewis 2012b; Slavin, 2011, Johnson & Johnson, 2009). There are many varieties of cooperative learning such as Teams-Games-Tournaments (TGT), Jigsaw Grouping, Group Investigation (GI), Student Teams Achievement Division (STAD), Learning Together (LT) and Team Accelerated Instruction (TAI).

Within each tier, there are three main components: a) “recognition, which involves gathering assessment information by screening all of the children”, b) “response, which includes providing an effective core curriculum, intentional teaching and targeted interventions linked to assessment results”, and c) “collaborative problem solving, which offers a process by which teachers, parents and specialists can work together to plan and evaluate instruction in all three tiers” (Buysse & Peisner-Feinburg, 2010, p. 4). Progress monitoring throughout the intervention process is still vital to success. The assessments are developmentally appropriate for the young students and can ideally be used for universal screening as well as monitoring the progress of students in Tier 2 and 3. These assessments are quick to administer, measure a child’s improvement and rate of growth, demonstrate how well a child performs at assessment time, are separate from the curriculum and measure skills in key domains of learning.

Purpose of Project: The purpose of my project is to investigate which level of government has the most significant impact on education policy, and how certain decisions can affect not only the decisions teachers make on a daily basis, but also how education issues are addressed in the United States as a whole. While there has been a large amount of focus on decisions being made at the federal level over the last decade such as No Child Left Behind and the Every Students Succeeds Act, states have also been placed in the spotlight in recent years. Some notable examples of state actions include the efforts to remove and replace the Common Core standards as well as an increase of legislators supporting school choice.
