Rapp, Diotima J.; Engelmann, Jan M.; Herrmann, Esther; Tomasello, Michael – Developmental Psychology, 2019
Reputational concerns are known to promote cooperation. Individuals regularly act more prosocially when their behavior is observable by others. Here, we investigate 4- and 5-year-old (N = 144) children's reputational strategies in a competitive group setting. The aim of the current study was to explore whether children's sharing behavior is…

Wischmann, Anke; Riepe, Valérie – Ethnography and Education, 2019
This paper aims to research practices of resistance as an important part of agency in primary school classrooms. By combining a post-structural theoretical frame with a critical ethnographic research approach, it understands children's resistance as an ordinary practice, as a necessary response to structures and practices of the classroom setting.…

Magro, Sophia W.; Utesch, Till; Dreiskämper, Dennis; Wagner, Jenny – International Journal of Behavioral Development, 2019
Though it is well-established that self-esteem develops from childhood well into old age, little is known about the processes that influence this change, especially among young populations. This international, cross-sequential study examined the development of self-esteem in 1599 second-graders (Age M[subscript T1] = 7.99, SD[subscript T1] = 0.52…

Schiefer, Julia; Golle, Jessika; Tibus, Maike; Oschatz, Kerstin – Journal of Advanced Academics, 2019
Scientific reasoning abilities are already developing in elementary-school-aged children and enable them to understand the world around them. The goal of the current study was to develop a new instrument for 8- to 10-year-old children in Grades 3 and 4 to measure their understanding of the steps of the "scientific inquiry cycle" (SIC).…

Weidinger, Anne F.; Steinmayr, Ricarda; Spinath, Birgit – Developmental Psychology, 2019
In line with the reciprocal internal/external frame of reference model (RI/E model), it is well-established that secondary school students generate domain-specific ability self-concepts by comparing their own performance in a domain socially (i.e., with others' performance in this domain) and dimensionally (i.e., with their own performance in…

Landerl, Karin; Freudenthaler, H. Harald; Heene, Moritz; De Jong, Peter F.; Desrochers, Alain; Manolitsis, George; Parrila, Rauno; Georgiou, George K. – Scientific Studies of Reading, 2019
Although phonological awareness (PA) and rapid automatized naming (RAN) are confirmed as early predictors of reading in a large number of orthographies, it is as yet unclear whether the predictive patterns are universal or language specific. This was examined in a longitudinal study across Grades 1 and 2 with 1,120 children acquiring one of five…

Glaab, Sabine; Heyne, Thomas – Applied Environmental Education and Communication, 2019
We evaluated environmental values of primary school children during a one-day program at a wildlife park and compared the outcomes concerning two different forms of instruction (teacher-centered, student-centered) as well as two different surroundings of learning settings (wildlife park, school) while observing state emotions. A total of 441…

Grünke, Matthias; Karnes, Jennifer; Hisgen, Susanne – Journal of Education and Training Studies, 2019
In this study, we examined the impact of a simple explicit-timing intervention on low-achieving third-grade students' ability to read more rapidly and accurately. We implemented an ABAB design with four struggling readers to establish experimental control and to evaluate the effects of the treatment in terms of the target variable. The results…

Raccanello, Daniela; Brondino, Margherita; Moè, Angelica; Stupnisky, Robert; Lichtenfeld, Stephanie – Journal of Experimental Education, 2019
This study investigated the enjoyment, boredom, and anxiety of elementary school students and the relations of these emotions with achievement in two domains. Seven-hundred-and-sixty-seven second- and fourth-graders completed an adaptation of the Achievement Emotions Questionnaire-Elementary School (AEQ-ES: Lichtenfeld, Pekrun, Stupnisky, Reiss,…

Spilles, Markus; Hagen, Tobias; Hennemann, Thomas – Insights into Learning Disabilities, 2019
Children with externalized behavioral problems (BP) are at increased risk of being affected by a lack of social skills and academic engagement, and reading difficulties can frequently occur. Peer-tutoring (PT) interventions demonstrably promote both positive behavior and academic outcomes. To foster these effects, using interdependent group-reward…

Grünke, Matthias – Insights into Learning Disabilities, 2019
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of a simple contingency contracting intervention on the correct use of punctuation marks in freely produced texts by elementary school children with learning disabilities. This approach can be considered a promising strategy for facilitating the development of academic skills in…

Grünke, Matthias; Karnes, Jennifer; Hisgen, Susanne – Insights into Learning Disabilities, 2019
The purpose of this single case study was to evaluate the effects of a multicomponent motivational intervention that consisted of explicit timing, immediate feedback through self- scoring, goal setting, and positive reinforcement on the arithmetical skills of three third graders with learning disabilities. An ABA reversal multiple-baseline…

Nishida, Yukiyo – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2019
This study examines how origami has been implemented, practised, and developed in the early childhood education of Japan over the past 140 years. Historically speaking, paper-folding has been part of Japanese symbolic art, craft culture, and religious ceremonial artefacts since paper and paper-folding techniques were first imported from China…

Dörr, Lisa; Perels, Franziska – International Electronic Journal of Elementary Education, 2019
Metacognition is a crucial prerequisite for self-regulated learning and refers to the knowledge and the regulation of cognitive processes. Several authors argue that children at preschool age can use initial metacognitive control strategies and monitor their learning activities. This fact will create the conditions for promoting metacognitive…
