Jutengren, Göran; Medin, Eva – Journal of Educational Research, 2019
The authors, with Swedish elementary school students (N = 201), 9-12 years old, examined the potential significance to self-perceived academic competence of students' cross-ethnic friendship ties and prosocial behavior to better understand education's minority achievement gap. A crossed-lagged panel model was tested to investigate potential…

Dare, Lynn; Nowicki, Elizabeth – Journal of Educational Research, 2019
For high-ability students to develop their full potential, they require evidence-based interventions tailored to their exceptional needs. Educational acceleration has proven effective with many high-ability students, but educators sometimes express concerns about social issues, and such concerns may block access to accelerative interventions.…

The relationship among students' reading performance, their behavior (task-focused behavior, emotional stability, and compliant behavior) in the classroom, and the teacher's skills was investigated in 66 third-grade classrooms. Results from this study showed the students' reading performance and their behavior in the classroom are all…

Franquesa-Soler, Montserrat; Barraza, Laura; Serio-Silva, Juan Carlos – Journal of Educational Research, 2019
Learning theories are rarely considered in the design of conservation education programs in Mexico. However, if students are taught in a way in which they can easily relate, this could improve the educational experience through better attitudes toward the natural environment. The learning preferences of 354 Mexican children at the primary level…

Russo, James; Hopkins, Sarah – Journal of Educational Research, 2019
Engaging students in a challenging (cognitively demanding) task and launching a mathematics lesson with a task before instruction are two characteristics of a reform-oriented approach to mathematics instruction often considered together. The authors systematically contrasted teaching with challenging tasks using a task-first lesson structure with…

Paige, David D.; Smith, Grant S.; Rasinski, Timothy Victor; Rupley, William H.; Magpuri-Lavell, Theresa; Nichols, William D. – Journal of Educational Research, 2019
Considerable evidence supports that close to two thirds of all fourth-grade students read at less than adequate levels on reading achievement tests and that the problem has persisted for decades. This study of 1,064 third-grade students at risk for reading failure uses path analytic techniques to measure a hypothesized model linking developmental…

Pace Miles, Katharine; Lauterbach, Mark D.; Murano, Dana M.; Dembek, Ginny A. – Journal of Educational Research, 2019
The authors examined whether Reading Rescue continues to be an effective literacy intervention and factors that impact its effectiveness. Data were collected on 143 first-grade students, tutored by 104 tutors at 38 schools. There was significant growth on all foundational skills (ps < 0.001) and significant change in proportion of students…

Lamb, Richard; Firestone, Jonah; Schmitter-Edgecombe, Maureen; Hand, Brian – Journal of Educational Research, 2019
Critical thinking when engaged in science problem solving around even simple tasks such as the Piagetian volume conservation task is a complex endeavor. Tasks such as the conservation task often require the interaction of multiple cognitive systems. Parity judgment, retrieval, and lateral thinking are three examples of such systems interacting…

Mavropoulou, Angeliki; Barkoukis, Vassilis; Douka, Styliani; Alexandris, Konstantinos; Hatzimanouil, Dimitris – Journal of Educational Research, 2019
Physical education in elementary education usually provides children's first contact with sports. According to the trans-contextual model of motivation, physical education teachers can positively influence children's beliefs toward and actual leisure time physical activity behavior. The aim of this study was to examine the effect of a dance-based…

Huang, Su-Ying; Yeh, Li-Li – Journal of Educational Research, 2019
The authors investigated the relationships among effortful control and frustration and literacy proficiency of preadolescence to determine which subcomponent of effortful control and/or emotion might be critical in achieving academic success. The participants included 72 children recruited from a larger longitudinal study. Children's frustration,…

Carsley, Dana; Heath, Nancy L. – Journal of Educational Research, 2019
The authors investigated the effectiveness of a mindfulness art activity compared with a free draw/coloring activity on test anxiety in children. The sample consisted of 152 students (50% female; Mage = 10.38 years, SD = 0.88 years) randomly assigned to a mindful (n = 76) or free (n = 76) group. Participants completed a standardized measure of…

The purpose of the present mixed methods study was to investigate a model of situated professional development and classroom-based early reading intervention implemented by the K-2 teaching teams from one school in a large urban/suburban school district in the southeastern United States. Twenty-nine teachers participated along with 125 students…
