Within the Canadian context, the physical activity levels of children and youth in the after school time period has become a source of public health concern. We argue that this concern is informed by broader public health crises, in particular the "global obesity epidemic" and the closely related "global pandemic of physical…

Casey, J. Elizabeth; Mireles, Selina V.; Viloria, Maria de Lourdes; Garza, Ester – Texas Journal of Literacy Education, 2018
Students who struggle with vocabulary knowledge often see a decline in comprehension of content. Even students who receive strong reading instruction in the early elementary years may still experience the fourth-grade slump (Chall, 1983), which more often affects students from underserved populations. Many of those same students are also affected…

Axelrod, Ysaaca; Cole, Mikel W. – Journal of Early Childhood Literacy, 2018
In this paper, we utilize the theory of "translanguaging" to make sense of the biliterate activities of young emergent bilinguals in a before-school program for Latinx students at an elementary school. Our findings show that even early writers are able to draw from their full linguistic repertoire, utilizing orthographic and syntactic…

Xiong, Caiping; Ge, Jun; Wang, Qiyun; Wang, Xuejun – Interactive Learning Environments, 2017
Imbalanced allocation of teacher resources is a major factor causing inequality in K-12 education in China. Traditional ways to solve this problem, such as on-site support teaching and recorded lectures of quality teachers, have posed many defects. It is suggested that information and communication technology should be employed to deal with the…

Riley, Nicholas; Lubans, David; Holmes, Kathryn; Hansen, Vibeke; Gore, Jennifer; Morgan, Philip – EURASIA Journal of Mathematics, Science & Technology Education, 2017
There has been a worldwide decline in interest and achievement in mathematics in young people. Despite the extensive benefits of physical activity, the majority of children are not sufficiently active. Schools have the potential to arrest both concerns through innovative teaching that challenges and complements traditional approaches. The aim of…
