Van Goch, Merel M.; Verhoeven, Ludo; McQueen, James M. – Journal of Child Language, 2019
In lexical development, the specificity of phonological representations is important. The ability to build phonologically specific lexical representations predicts the number of words a child knows (vocabulary breadth), but it is not clear if it also fosters how well words are known (vocabulary depth). Sixty-six children were studied in…

Beserra, Vagner; Nussbaum, Miguel; Oteo, Macarena – Journal of Educational Computing Research, 2019
When performing a task in the classroom, it is essential to place the focus on learning. In the classroom, it is possible to distinguish between time spent by students on-task and off-task. The former is the time in which the student is focused on the learning task; the latter is the remaining time in which they focus on other activities.…

Ghalebandi, S. Ghazal; Noorhidawati, A. – Journal of Educational Computing Research, 2019
Traditional definitions of reading seem inadequate in today's world as children encounter and interact with electronic screen-based reading using handheld devices such as tablets, smart phones, and so on. This study builds upon the context of reading engagement for pleasure and targets Malaysian bilingual children at the early stage of learning to…

Ramstetter, Catherine L.; Fink, Dale Borman – American Educator, 2019
The purpose of this article is to promote a deeper, more complex understanding of the challenge that "recess time" poses to elementary school educators and to thereby understand the practices in which they are currently engaging. Because teachers are expected to shepherd students through a vast array of learning standards while remaining…

Buttaro, Anthony, Jr.; Catsambis, Sophia – Teachers College Record, 2019
Background: Ability grouping has resurged in U.S. schools despite long-standing debates over its consequences for educational equity. Proponents argue that it is the best response to variation in academic skills because it allows teachers to customize the content and pace of instruction to students' diverse needs. Critics answer that this practice…

Steacy, Laura M.; Compton, Donald L.; Petscher, Yaacov; Elliott, James D.; Smith, Kathryn; Rueckl, Jay G.; Sawi, Oliver; Frost, Stephen J.; Pugh, Kenneth R. – Scientific Studies of Reading, 2019
As children learn to read, they become sensitive to context-dependent vowel pronunciations in words, considered a form of statistical learning. The work of Treiman and colleagues demonstrated that readers' vowel pronunciations depend on the consonantal context in which the vowel occurs and reading experience. Using explanatory item-response models…

Levesque, Kyle C.; Kieffer, Michael J.; Deacon, S. Hélène – Reading Research Quarterly, 2019
Skilled reading comprehension is an important goal of educational instruction and models of reading development. In this study, the authors investigated how core skills surrounding morphemes, that is, the minimal units of meaning in language, support the development of reading comprehension. The authors specifically contrast the roles of…

Freeman, Niecea D.; Townsend, Dianna; Templeton, Shane – Reading Teacher, 2019
The authors detail word-learning strategies from a small-scale early reading intervention for first graders (N = 3) focused on Greek and Latin roots in science-based informational texts. Educators can provide explicit instruction to support student awareness of word structures in content-specific vocabulary, and this instruction can be adapted to…

Concannon-Gibney, Tara – Reading Teacher, 2019
Poetry has often been described as the neglected genre despite its potential to engage and motivate students of all abilities in reading and writing. Indeed, poetry provides an excellent forum for the development of literacy skills and strategies in a meaningful context. The author describes how a teacher implemented a poetry genre study in a…

Juhasz, Barbara J.; Yap, Melvin J.; Raoul, Akila; Kaye, Micaela – Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition, 2019
Word frequency is an important predictor of lexical-decision task performance. The current study further examined the role of this variable by exploring the influence of frequency trajectory. Frequency trajectory is measured by how often a word occurs in childhood relative to adulthood. Past research on the role of this variable in word…

Botzum, Krystalyn; Sparks, Kelly; Smothers, Moriah – Science and Children, 2019
While curriculum designed as project-based learning is not suitable for use with every science standard, this methodology can be used when teaching concepts that naturally contain some flexibility. With small adaptations, teachers can implement these practices into the classroom regardless of the grade level. This article provides a detailed…

Masters, Heidi; Hilgendorf, Chelsey; Stundahl, Lisa; Gresl, Megan; Jentsch, Amber – Science and Children, 2019
To support elementary school students in finding a solution to an engineering problem, the authors developed a series of five lessons using the 5E Instructional Model (Bybee 2014). The lessons align with the "Next Generation Science Standards" and the "Common Core State Standards" and integrate the teaching and learning of…

Purwadi, I. Made Ari; Sudiarta, I. Gusti Putu; Suparta, I. Nengah – International Journal of Instruction, 2019
This study aimed at: (1) determining whether the Concrete-Pictorial-Abstract (CPA) strategy has a positive effect on students' mathematical conceptual understanding (MCU) and students' mathematical representation (MR) on fractions; (2) describing how CPA strategy can improve students' MCU and students' MR on fractions. This research used a mixed…

Cho, Hyonsuk; Wang, X. Christine; Christ, Tanya – Journal of Research in Childhood Education, 2019
When young refugee English language learners (ELLs) start formal schooling in the United States, the social-emotional learning (SEL) appropriate for the U.S. school context may be especially unfamiliar to them. By interviewing six elementary school teachers, this exploratory study examined how teachers describe refugee ELLs' social-emotional…

Biancarosa, Gina; Kennedy, Patrick C.; Carlson, Sarah E.; Yoon, HyeonJin; Seipel, Ben; Liu, Bowen; Davison, Mark L. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2019
Prior research suggests that subscores from a single achievement test seldom add value over a single total score. Such scores typically correspond to subcontent areas in the total content domain, but content subdomains might not provide a sound basis for subscores. Using scores on an inferential reading comprehension test from 625 third, fourth,…
