Bara, Florence; Morin, Marie-France – Psychology in the Schools, 2013
An important issue relating to the teaching of handwriting concerns the style that should be learned at school (manuscript or cursive). Whereas some countries choose to teach both styles (e.g., Canada), other countries choose to teach only one (e.g., France). Our research had three main underlying goals, namely (1) to observe and describe the…

Yang, Der-Ching; Li, Mao-Neng – Educational Technology & Society, 2013
The purpose of this study was to examine the relative effectiveness of two different learning modes; namely, a computer animation self-directed learning approach and a paper version of the self-directed learning approach, to 5th-graders' number sense development. Two 5th-grade classes, 30 students each, were selected from a public elementary…

Williams, Laura K.; Mendiburo, Maria; Hasselbring, Ted – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2013
A strong understanding of fractions is vital to later success in mathematics. However, research has consistently shown that fractions are one of the most difficult mathematical concepts for elementary school students to master. To attempt to remedy this deficit, the authors began a project called Helping At-risk students Learn Fractions (HALF) in…

Rhea, Anisa – Wake County Public School System, 2013
Extending the school day through programs that will supplement core courses, such as offering intensive, after-school tutoring or small-group study sessions in reading and mathematics, is one method districts use to boost school performance and narrow educational achievement gaps between students of different racial and economic backgrounds (Redd…

Richards, Maryse H.; Sanderson, Rebecca Cornelli; Celio, Christine I.; Grant, Jane E.; Choi, Inhe; George, Christine C.; Deane, Kyle – Journal of Experiential Education, 2013
Over the past few decades, service-learning has surged in popularity. Although most programs are implemented in high school and college classrooms, service-learning has the potential for great impact in middle school. The present article evaluates a pilot service-learning program for fifth- and seventh-grade (N = 86) children in a large, urban,…

De Weerdt, Frauke; Desoete, Annemie; Roeyers, Herbert – Journal of Learning Disabilities, 2013
Elementary school children with reading disabilities (RD; "n" = 17), mathematical disabilities (MD; "n" = 22), or combined reading and mathematical disabilities (RD+MD; "n" = 28) were compared to average achieving (AA; "n" = 45) peers on working memory measures. On all working memory components, 2 (RD vs. no…

Justice, Laura; Mashburn, Andrew; Petscher, Yaacov – Journal of Research in Reading, 2013
This study tested the theory that future poor comprehenders would show modest but pervasive deficits in both language comprehension and production during early childhood as compared with future poor decoders and typical readers. Using an existing database (NICHD ECCRN), fifth-grade students were identified as having poor comprehension skills…
