Gerdin, Göran; Philpot, Rod Allan; Larsson, Lena; Schenker, Katarina; Linnér, Susanne; Moen, Kjersti Mordal; Westlie, Knut; Smith, Wayne; Legge, Maureen – European Physical Education Review, 2019
The way school Health and Physical Education (HPE) is conceptualized and taught will impact on its ability to provide equitable outcomes across gender, sexuality, ethnicity, religion and social class.

Riggs, Anne E. – Developmental Psychology, 2019
To acquire social conventional knowledge, children must distinguish between behaviors that are practiced by groups of people versus those that are practiced by individuals.

Suarez-Rivera, Catalina; Smith, Linda B.; Yu, Chen – Developmental Psychology, 2019
Parents support and scaffold more mature behaviors in their infants. Recent research suggests that parent-infant joint visual attention may scaffold the development of sustained attention by extending the duration of an infant's attention to an object. The open question concerns the parent behaviors that occur within joint-attention episodes and…

Duke, Nell K.; Mesmer, Heidi Anne E. – American Educator, 2019
The need to explicitly teach letter-sound relationships in U.S. classrooms is settled science. However, too often such instruction is not provided in the most efficient or effective way. These instructional missteps mean that fewer children will develop strong word-reading skills. In addition, ineffective phonics instruction is likely to require…
