Stahl, Steven A.; Yaden, David B., Jr. – Elementary School Journal, 2004
To reach the national goal that all children in the United States will read at an appropriate level by the end of third grade, the Center for the Improvement of Early Reading Achievement (CIERA) has studied the reading growth of children in preschool and primary classes, both in and out of school. Our framework suggests that children need to…

Leach, Jenny; Patel, Rakhee; Peters, Alexis; Power, Thomas; Ahmed, Atef; Makalima, Shumi – European Journal of Teacher Education, 2004
The Digital Education Enhancement Project (DEEP) is investigating the ways in which new technologies can improve the teaching of literacy, numeracy and science in primary schools in Egypt and South Africa. Forty-eight primary teachers (24 in each country) have been carrying out a sequence of classroom-focused professional development activities,…

Newman, Elizabeth; Taylor, Alison; Whitehead, Joan; Planel, Claire – European Journal of Teacher Education, 2004
This paper focuses on the European policy initiative to increase the number of teachers able to teach a modern foreign language in primary schools. It particularly focuses on the exchange placement which is an integral part of a training programme run by a university faculty of education in England and an Institut de Formation des Maitres in…

West, P.; Sweeting, H.; Leyland, A. – Research Papers in Education, 2004
Compared with the volume of research on school effects on educational outcomes, and in spite of growing interest in the health promoting school, there are very few studies that have investigated the way schools influence pupils' health behaviours. This paper reports the results of a longitudinal study of over 2000 young people in the West of…

Panayiotopoulos, Christos – Emotional and Behavioural Difficulties, 2004
School exclusions remain at a high level in the UK. Exclusions are the result of the interaction of complex factors, and schools are not equipped to tackle disaffection and disruptive behaviour on their own. The article describes the evaluation of a multidisciplinary home and school support project in a city borough. The project provides early…

Bobis, Janette – Australian Primary Mathematics Classroom, 2004
Estimation is an important skill for everyday living. Good estimators usually have a sound knowledge of basic facts, understand place value and use a variety of strategies to make their estimates. This paper describes an activity which is designed to provide students with opportunities to practice their rounding strategies with addition and…

Bell, Garry; Henderson, Colleen – Australian Primary Mathematics Classroom, 2004
Whenever teachers of young children get together there will be differences of opinion about how far children should be taught to count. Some will argue that the focus should be on small numbers to 9, building up the notion of what, say, the name 5 means, what it looks like, and how it can be represented. Others argue that with ice blocks retailing…

Scholz, Simon – Australian Primary Mathematics Classroom, 2004
All teachers are aware of the wide range of abilities that exist within most standard Australian primary school classrooms. Many of these schools implement structures such as ability grouping and/or streaming to help meet the needs of this diverse group of learners; but does ability grouping meet these needs? The number of studies that have looked…

Pratt, Dave; Simpson, Amanda – Australian Primary Mathematics Classroom, 2004
Mathematics in textbooks and indeed in conventional classrooms is often presented as exercises or worksheets in which the mathematics itself has been processed into a form that is easily digested. This McDonald's version of mathematics ensures that the mathematical skill or technique is laid bare and typically the sole focus of attention. In this…

Caney, Annaliese – Australian Primary Mathematics Classroom, 2004
Facilitating mental computation discussion comes with its own set of challenges for researchers and teachers. It is important to be able to help capture the students' ideas, before they disappear and seem like little more than moments of magic! In enabling children to learn how numbers work, the current emphasis on mental computation is driven by…

Arnold, Stephen – Australian Primary Mathematics Classroom, 2004
In the past, graphic calculators have been sophisticated and exciting tools for higher mathematics, but few would have considered using them more than occasionally with younger students. All this has now changed with the growing range of software Apps now available for Texas Instruments TI-83 Plus calculators. These Apps are more like computer…

Way, Jenni – Australian Primary Mathematics Classroom, 2004
Sometimes simple ideas are more productive than complex and over-prepared lessons; perhaps because of the flexibility afforded both teachers and students. This article provides a description of the basic activity and the potential mathematics associated with it. It also gives examples of how the basic activity could be implemented with students of…

Gough, John – Australian Primary Mathematics Classroom, 2004
Sometimes the first step towards making a new (mathematics) game is discovering an unexpected possibility in some hitherto unplayed-with piece of equipment. At other times the first step is inventing new equipment. But rarely is any "new" idea for a game wholly original, either as a way of playing a game, or in its equipment. As…

Swan, Paul – Australian Primary Mathematics Classroom, 2004
Mathematics curriculum documents highlight the need for students to be able to choose from a repertoire of computational tools and strategies, but little direction is given as to how children choose which form of computation to use in any given situation. In this article, the author reports on the classroom implications of research designed to…
