In the present study, 29 CS and 34 NCS second and third graders aged 76 to 122 months (M = 93.65) participated in an experiment where they were taught 16 new Chinese characters in one of four conditions--copy, radical, phonological and…

Young, Chase; Rasinski, Timothy – Journal of Research in Reading, 2018
In this quasi-experimental study, the researchers examined the effects of implementing Readers Theatre in a second grade classroom, comprised of seven and eight-year-old students. The 70 subjects were chosen as a non-probability sample from two different classes and served as the treatment (n = 29) and comparison (n = 41) groups. A repeated…

Vaknin-Nusbaum, Vered; Nevo, Einat; Brande, Sigi; Gambrell, Linda – Journal of Research in Reading, 2018
This investigation examined developmental aspects of 155 second-graders' intrinsic reading motivation and reading achievement at the beginning and end of a school year. Reading motivation remained at the same level through the school year, while reading achievement was significantly higher at the end of it than at the beginning. According to word…

Eichhorn, Melinda S.; Perry, Lindsey E.; Brombacher, Aarnout – International Journal of Research in Education and Science, 2018
Many students around the world are exposed to a rote teaching style in mathematics that emphasizes memorization of procedures. Students are frequently presented with standard types of equations in their textbooks, in which the equal sign is immediately preceding the answer (a + b = c). This exposure can lead to many misconceptions, such as…

August, Diane; Artzi, Lauren; Barr, Christopher; Francis, David – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2018
This study used a within-subjects design to explore two instructional conditions for developing vocabulary in second-grade Spanish-speaking English learners (ELs)--extended instruction and embedded instruction implemented during shared interactive reading. Words assigned to the extended condition were directly taught using a multifaceted approach…

Squires, Katie E. – Language, Speech, and Hearing Services in Schools, 2018
Purpose: Reading requires the ability to decode and comprehend. Impairments in working memory (WM) are often implicated in students who are poor decoders. It is unclear whether this is a domain-specific issue or a task-specific issue. Therefore, this study examined how auditory-verbal (AV) WM, visual-spatial (VS) WM, and cognitive load affected…

Bhattacharya, Devarati; Adams, Krista L.; Mittelstet, Tammera J. – Science and Children, 2018
Scientific modeling, the practice of creating models such as "diagrams, analogies, and simulations" (NGSS Lead States 2013) allows students to develop and revise their own representations of the natural world and use them to generate predictions and explanations about scientific phenomenon. Research provides evidence for elementary…

Linder, Deborah E.; Mueller, Megan K.; Gibbs, Debra M.; Alper, Jean A.; Freeman, Lisa M. – Early Childhood Education Journal, 2018
Reading skills are an important component of academic success for school-age youth, and are associated with increased academic performance and positive attitudes about school. The presence of an animal appears to reduce stress during reading. Therefore, the goal of this study was to assess the feasibility and effects of a 6-week after-school…

Young, Chase; Durham, Patricia; Rosenbaum-Martinez, Crystal – Journal of Research in Childhood Education, 2018
Fifty 2nd- and 3rd-grade students identified as experiencing difficulty reading were randomly assigned to experimental and control groups. In the experimental group, students received a reading intervention called Read Two Impress for a total of 360 min. Students in the control continued to receive regular instruction from their teacher. A 2 × 3…

Koponen, Tuire; Aro, Mikko; Poikkeus, Anna-Maija; Niemi, Pekka; Lerkkanen, Marja-Kristiina; Ahonen, Timo; Nurmi, Jari-Erik – Exceptional Children, 2018
We examined the prevalence of comorbidity of dysfluent reading and math skills longitudinally in a representative sample (N = 1,928) and the stability of comorbid and single difficulties from first to fourth grades. The findings indicated that half the children who showed very low performance in one skill also evidenced low or very low performance…

Reifinger, James L., Jr. – Journal of Research in Music Education, 2018
This study investigated correlates that might explain variance in beginning sight-singing achievement, including tonal discrimination, reading fluency, reading comprehension, and academic ability. Both curriculum-based and standardized tests were used, including the Intermediate Measures of Music Audiation, Otis-Lennon School Ability Test, and…

Kitagawa, Laura; Pomba, Elizabeth; Davis, Tina – Science and Children, 2018
Makerspaces have become very popular in education because they "provide hands-on, creative ways to encourage students to design, experiment, build, and invent as they deeply engage in science, engineering, and tinkering" (Cooper 2013). Not only do makerspaces provide a safe learning environment for students to develop their 21st century…

Osorio, Sandra Lucia – Bilingual Research Journal, 2018
This article describes second-grade emergent bilinguals' dialogue in culture circles. I share how the tenets of humanizing pedagogy were manifested as my students and I engaged in critical pedagogy around issues of power and privilege related to bilingualism, biliteracy, and biculturalism. Together we sought mutual humanization through the…

Harvey, Susan P.; Lambourne, Kate; Greene, Jerry L.; Gibson, Cheryl A.; Lee, Jaehoon; Donnelly, Joseph E. – Contemporary School Psychology, 2018
Research in education and developmental psychology indicates that behavioral engagement in learning is a critical predictor of children's academic success. In an effort to improve academic achievement, school administrators are continually in search of methods to increase behavioral engagement. Previous research has indicated that classroom-based…

Bartee, Roderick T.; Heelan, Kate A.; Dority, Bree L. – Journal of School Health, 2018
Background: Research is emerging suggesting that fitness not only improves health, but enhances academic achievement in children. Many studies have found the strongest correlation with academic achievement to be aerobic fitness. The purpose of this study is to examine the influence of aerobic fitness and academic ranking on the association between…
