Resymbolization of A.S. Makarenko’s Experience in Modern Pedagogical Discourse
Original Research
The problem discussed in the article is related to the attitude to the pedagogical tradition born in conditions of the formation and development of the totalitarian society. Advanced is the idea that the determining condition for reconstruction and analysis of the tradition experience which is available exclusively in the form of the text of the tradition is not so much its certain essence but a modern context which contains the text of the tradition. As a result, the connection with the tradition is implemented as an inter-textual attitude. The inclusion of the text of tradition in the modern context is termed as “resymbolization” in this paper. Described are three strategies of resymbolization, namely: “iconophobia”, “iconophilia”, and “social-constructionistic”. They all, to some extent, are present in the pedagogical discourse of post-socialist communities. The former two strategies are oriented at the “truth” of the tradition, whereas the third strategy considers it as an interpretive and practical category. Analyzed is the structural-functional organization of the three strategies of resymbolization.

A New Approach for Introducing Schrödinger’s Equation Using Maxwell’s Equations, Quantum Mechanics, and Special Relativity
Original Research
The wave-particle duality for light has been well established by various experiments, such as Young’s double slit experiment and the photoelectric effect. This led de Broglie to propose that a particle also has wave characteristics. Schrödinger further established the wave equation for a moving particle. Many times, quantum mechanics textbooks do not show how Schrödinger’s equation was developed in an intuitive manner that is appropriate at the undergraduate level. This article presents a new approach for introducing Schrödinger’s equation. This new approach starts with Maxwell’s equations and then applies the quantized energy of a light wave and special relativity. This more intuitive approach should help undergraduate students understand the origin of Schrödinger’s equation in a more natural way.

Perceived Enhancement of College Students’ Communication Skill through International Co-Teaching for Globally Competitive Markets
Original Research
Co-Teaching is defined as two teachers (teacher candidate and cooperating teacher) working together with groups of students; sharing the planning, organization, delivery, and assessment of instruction, as well as the physical space. The study determined the impact of one (1) international co-teacher working with six Filipino teachers on college students’ communication skill at Mindoro State College of Agriculture and Technology, Calapan City, Philippines. The respondents of the study were 150 using purposive sampling. The study used interviews; and questionnaires were the data instrument in the study. The study found out that students increased their language competency in English as well as gain knowledgeable content for their field of study using international co-teaching. One of the benefits of co-teaching in the tertiary level is that two teachers can learn from each other because of the teaching experience they both have. For instance, in Mindoro State College of Agriculture and Technology, a teacher who is a native Filipino can interact with the students because they share a common culture; on the other hand a teacher who is native English speaker can provide another perspective a new dimension of teaching English. Both teachers can collaborate with one another when it comes to planning, instruction and evaluation of the teaching and learning process. The idea of being handled by two instructors who have different cultural background, with different nationalities can provide a more engaging discussion and classroom interactions for the students. Thus, the main concern of this study is to identify the impact co-teaching between native English speaker and Filipino speakers on the student learning outcomes.

Special Features in Ho Chi Minh's Thought about Human Rights
Original Research
Human rights and national rights are great values of humanity. Human rights are apparent, not an allowance or blessed upon by a higher power. These are noble values, deeply perceived by humanity as a universal value. Protecting and applying human rights is always a concern of mankind. The developmental theory about them is strongly linked to class struggle and social revolutions. The evolving process of mankind has indicated an great desire for human rights and freedom. Human rights contain a wealth of content and complexity when combined with different political regimes, so there are often different views about human rights due to different approaches. In Vietnam, Ho Chi Minh mentioned human rights very early and made many contributions to human rights’ theory. Inheriting and developing of human rights values from the doctrines and cultures of humanity, Ho Chi Minh has addressed his opinion on human rights: human rights attached to the spiritual rights of the whole nation. The author analyzes the uniquenesses of Ho Chi Minh's thought on human rights, thereby explains the historical values and times significance of Ho Chi Minh’s thought.

The Relationship between the Individual and Society in Eastern Culture
Original Research
The relationship between the individual and society is objective in life in the essence of the dialectical relationship between the general and the particular; It has both consistency and contradiction. As a historical phenomenon, the personal-social relationship works, transforms and develops around the clock. With the development of society, the role of the individual and its boundary in relation to the society must be clearly defined. In each country or nation, in a particular cultural context, the personal-social relationship manifests itself in different ways. Particularly, there is a fundamental difference between Western and Eastern culture when considering this relationship. Within the scope of the article, the author approaches, exploits the similarities of some Eastern countries (including Vietnam) about the concept and orientation to solve the relationship between the individual and society. This is considered to be a new direction on the issue that has not been deeply researched during this period.

Push-pull Relationships between Concerns and Personal Engagement: Exploring the Adoption of edTPA as an Innovation
Original Research
This study utilized the concerns-based adoption model (CBAM) to understand faculty’s responses to the implementation of edTPA as a requirement for initial teacher certification. Two instruments were used to examine faculty’s behavioral and motivational response to the policy change. Faculty representing private and public institutions across the state (N = 56) responded to both instruments. Questionnaire items were analyzed by converting raw scores to percentiles, while open-ended responses were coded by stage of concern. Positive correlations between stages of concern and levels of integration indicated that engaging in a collaborative process of analyzing candidates’ scores possibly leads to a deeper understanding of edTPA as a construct and may help faculty make informed decisions about their emphasis on different aspects of edTPA in their courses. Faculty who were unconcerned or focused on personal issues were less likely to be involved in activities such as analyzing and making informed decisions utilizing student data from local and national scores. Faculty who integrated edTPA-like content into their courses were more focused on finding ways to manage time and resources related to edTPA and were more involved in collaboration with other faculty members. Opportunities for collective data analysis within institutions may have played an important role in faculty’s involvement in assessing personal strengths and areas of improvement in preparing candidates to pass edTPA in the consequential year.
