Scrivner, Scott; Wolfe, Barbara – Institute for Research on Poverty, 2003
Experts tell us that 4-year-olds have much to gain from a stimulating and nurturing preschool experience, and mounting evidence suggests that these benefits accrue to society on a much larger scale as well. Although numerous proposals acknowledge the benefits of and need for improved early childhood education, few contain specific recommendations…

In Wales the national curriculum programmes of study for key stages 1 to 4 are broadly similar to those of England, as is the current statutory assessment system, although pupils at key stage 1 no longer take national tests in science. At key stage 1, pupils' work is assessed by their teachers to provide an end-of-key-stage level. The statutory…

Rolheiser, Carol; Fullan, Michael; Edge, Karen – Journal of Staff Development, 2003
The Toronto school district combines professional learning in literacy with learning about change to give staying power to literacy-driven reform. Using literacy as the basis for large-scale reform can be challenging without equipping staff with the skills they need to cope with and implement such broad-scale change. Teach both skills at once and…

Ogonda, Agnes A.; Carroll, Marie – Information Technology in Childhood Education Annual, 2002
Sixteen 7-year-old children from an urban primary school were assessed for cognitive processing style by means of the Cognitive Assessment System (CAS), which indicated their positions on each of the two dimensions of Attention and Planning. Then they searched for information on a CD-ROM of text and nontext-based hypermedia. Instruction and…

Price, Alison – Mathematics Teaching, 2002
With the introduction of the latest national curriculum, using and applying mathematics retained its attainment target within the level descriptions, but the programme of study was integrated into the programmes of study for curriculum content (number, shape, space, and measures). This brought it in line with the national numeracy strategy, which…

McIntyre, Ellen; Kyle, Diane – Center for Research on Education, Diversity & Excellence, 2002
In nongraded, multi-age classrooms, children have the opportunity to learn a great deal from their more proficient classmates. Children in multi-age, nongraded programs often learn that children differ, and they learn to assist each other in productive ways. The organizational scheme has the potential to remove much of the competition of…

Morrisson, Christian – OECD Publishing (NJ1), 2002
It is generally agreed that spending on education and health is key to poverty reduction, but simply allocating more resources to these sectors does not ensure that poverty actually declines. On the basis of four in-depth case studies (on Indonesia, Madagascar, Peru and Tanzania) and three Technical Papers on malnutrition and primary education in…

Wilde, Elizabeth Ty; Hollister, Robinson – Institute for Research on Poverty, 2002
In this study we test the performance of some nonexperimental estimators of impacts applied to an educational intervention--reduction in class size--where achievement test scores were the outcome. We compare the nonexperimental estimates of the impacts to "true impact" estimates provided by a random-assignment design used to assess the…
