Rønneberg, Vibeke; Torrance, Mark – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2019
Spelling accuracy and time course was investigated in a sample of 100 Norwegian 6th grade students completing a standardized spelling-to-dictation task. Students responded by keyboard with accurate recordings of response-onset latency (RT) and inter-keypress interval (IKI). We determined effects of a number of child-level cognitive ability…

Quémart, Pauline; Lambert, Eric – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2019
Grapheme and syllable units have been shown to influence the dynamics of handwriting in adults and children, but the influence of morphemes remains to be clarified. We tested the ability of French-speaking adults and fourth and sixth grade children to process the morphological structure of words during writing. They were asked to copy three types…

Harris, Karen R.; Ray, Amber; Graham, Steve; Houston, Julia – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2019
We designed and investigated the first set of instructional procedures we are aware of to teach 4th and 5th grade students how to write a persuasive essay following close reading of a source text. Eight boys and girls attending a diverse, low income school who were having difficulty learning to write participated in an experimental…

McKeown, Debra; FitzPatrick, Erin; Brown, Megan; Brindle, Mary; Owens, Julie; Hendrick, Robert – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2019
Writing allows access to venues often limited by poverty, disabilities, and geography. Promoting writing skills can create bridges to overcome the isolation that often keeps communities from engaging with one another. However, most of the students in the nation's schools are not capable writers and find the persuasive genres challenging. In this…

Ferretti, Ralph P.; Lewis, William E. – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2019
We assessed the influence of genre-specific discourse knowledge and writing goals on the persuasive writing of 4th and 6th grade students with and without learning disabilities (LD). Students were first interviewed about their knowledge of persuasion and persuasive writing. They then wrote a persuasive essay about a controversial topic after…

Wijekumar, Kay; Graham, Steve; Harris, Karen R.; Lei, Pui-Wa; Barkel, Ashley; Aitken, Angelique; Ray, Amber; Houston, Julia – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2019
A core tenet of the model of domain learning is that learning is shaped by cognitive and motivational forces. In writing, these catalysts include learners' knowledge, motivation, strategic behaviors, and skills. This study tested this proposition at two time points (Fall and Spring) with 179 fifth-grade students (52% were girls), examining if…

de Bree, Elise; van den Boer, Madelon – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2019
Although research on cognitive correlates of spelling has been conducted, these studies generally do not distinguish between different types of targets that need to be spelled. Arguably, the contributions of these skills differ for words opposed to pseudowords and for targets that can be spelled on the basis of phoneme-to-grapheme conversion…

Tate, Tamara P.; Warschauer, Mark; Kim, Young-Suk Grace – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2019
Writing is critical for college and career readiness, yet secondary students in America are not good writers (National Center for Education Statistics, 2012). Unfortunately, researchers know relatively little about secondary students' writing skills, and even less about their digital writing. In this study, we explored prior computer use, keyboard…

Cerdán, R.; Pérez, A.; Vidal-Abarca, E.; Rouet, J. F. – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2019
The present study investigates the effectiveness of question paraphrases in supporting students' understanding of a specific task. Secondary school students (i.e., eighth grade) read two texts and answered several questions while texts were available. A paraphrase including core information about each question was included before students provided…

Zhao, Ying; Cheng, Yahua; Wu, Xinchun – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2019
Some cognitive processes may be shared between reading comprehension and reading fluency, while others may be independent. In this longitudinal study, 127 Chinese children in grades 1-2 were tested three times (T1-T3) to explore the contributions of early morphological awareness and rapid automatized naming (RAN) to subsequent reading…

Keresteš, Gordana; Brkovic, Irma; Siegel, Linda S.; Tjus, Tomas; Hjelmquist, Erland – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2019
The purpose of this study was to investigate literacy development beyond the early school years. We investigated mean-level and rank-order changes in two reading (word decoding speed and reading comprehension) and two spelling (word and pseudoword spelling accuracy) tasks during a 4-year period from beginning to the later grades of elementary…

Wang, Elaine Lin; Matsumura, Lindsay Clare – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2019
Writing analytically about text is a valued skill reflected in current academic standards. The quality of text-based writing opportunities in U.S. elementary schools, however, is generally weak, with variation in the rigor of the writing tasks teachers assign. Previous research suggests that teachers' beliefs about instruction significantly…

Vibulpatanavong, Kanokporn; Evans, David – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2019
Phonological awareness has been found to be an important skill underpinning reading development in several alphabetic languages. However, the development of phonological awareness and its relationship to reading development can be influenced by the nature of the language under investigation. While understanding this relationship in Thai language…

Xu, Zhengye; Liu, Duo – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2019
In the present study, 151 third-grade Hong Kong children participated in two expression-picture matching experiments (a relation priming paradigm). In this paradigm, an unambiguous prime was first presented, followed by an ambiguous target that could be interpreted with either of two relations (i.e., Descriptor and Possessor). Children were asked…

Rahbari, Noriyeh – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2019
The objective of the present study is to examine the error patterns for Persian reading and spelling when controlling for the complexity level of words. A sample of 140 children attending Grades 1-4 in Iran read and spelled the same words that differed in reading transparency (transparent vs. opaque) and spelling consistency (monographic vs.…
