This research aimed to study the challenges which elementary teachers deal with lesson study. This research studied challenges in three stages, before, during and after lesson study. To achieve the aim of the research, a case study in a school was used. Participants of this research have been 20 elementary teacher of that school. Data collection tools have been semi-structured interviews with teachers and participatory observation. Coding and categorizing were used to analyzing data. Findings showed that teachers faced with three categories of challenges before lesson study: teachers' knowledge about lesson study, teachers’ motivation to participatet in lesson study, creating group and determination of the responsibilities of the group members. During lesson study teachers faced with three categories of challenges: selecting problem, implementing lesson and data collection, reviewing and criticizing the lesson. After lesson study teachers confronted with three categories of challenges: refereeing, publishing and the lesson study festival.

The present study aimed at identifying the challenges of “descriptive evaluation” program launched by the Ministry of Education in Iran in 2004, nationwide. The research was designed through employing qualitative approach and phenomenography to better understand the challenges which elementary teachers had with evaluation of “mathematics” as one of the subject matters. The participants of the study were 24 elementary teachers who voluntarily participated in this study.  The data were collected through semi- structured interviews, a focus group and researchers’ field notes and their interactive discussions about interviews and focus group. Four main categories of challenges were identified: “policy- making”, “executive- education”, “conceptual” and “social- cultural”. It is concluded that a clearer picture of challenges that elementary teachers encounter with this program while teaching mathematics needs to be presented. It is necessary for policy- makers and planners to find more rational solutions for these challenges.

In the implementation of the new curriculum, art education has been marginalized. For this purpose, scientific activities must be planned which the person tries to change the unfavorable situation to a relatively favorable situation (action research). The aim of this study is the investigation of the challenges elementary classroom teachers face when implementing the new arts education curriculum and explanation of the concept of action research in integration of arts in elementary schools to implement the new art education programs. The method of study was integrated and based on action research. By using various arts (integration of art) and improving the conditions for its implementation (action research) it became clear that students are interested in changing the artistic program for its pivotality. Satisfactory results were also generated in the field of education and learning.​Implementing of new curriculum program based on the integration of art will increase the participation.

The aim of the present study was to investigate what and how entertainment-based education is in elementary school curricula. The research paradigm was qualitative and research synthesis method. The research population consisted of valid and new research papers, books and research projects in the world and the sampling method was a purposeful method based on criteria. In order to improve the quality of the findings, after the final coding and categorization, the opinions of the professors of the curriculum were used. The logic of the program was explained in the form of a set of philosophical foundations of constructivism. The goals of entertainment-based education included building individual competence, skills training, reducing the digital divide, building interest in education, promoting media literacy, and providing lifelong learning;Teaching and learning strategies included direct instruction, rotational instruction, problem-solving instruction, and exploratory instruction;Evaluation is done in the form of formative evaluation, self-evaluation and final evaluation.

The purpose of this study was to systematically study the applications of integration in elementary school curricula. Therefore, the applications of integration were examined from all aspects. The research approach was qualitative and with a hybrid strategy. To achieve the above explanation, synthesis research method and content analysis technique have been used. The study population was domestic research since 1380 and foreign research since 2015, which was done through content analysis, classification and screening, and 91 studies that met the criteria and criteria were purposefully selected, coded and classified. Then, using content analysis, 5 dimensions were identified, which are: application of integration in physical education curriculum, application of integration in art curriculum and application of integration of art with other curricula, application of integration of life skills training in the program Curriculum, application of integration of ICT (information and communication technology) in curricula, design and organization of curricula.

The aim of this study was to design and validate the elementary school math curriculum model based on cognitive approach. The research method is mixed. In the qualitative section, first, according to the findings of the research of Zadshir et al. (1401), the characteristics of the ten elements of the mathematics curriculum were extracted with a cognitive approach. Compiled and designed the initial model. In the quantitative part, a researcher-made questionnaire was used by the survey method to validate the designed model, and the designed program was validated by experts in cognitive sciences, mathematics education, and curriculum planning. And after reviewing the opinions of experts about the designed model, the final model was designed. In the last step, to validate the designed model, the data obtained from the quantitative part were analyzed using descriptive and inferential statistics. The obtained results indicate the validity of the designed model.
