Landerl, Karin; Freudenthaler, H. Harald; Heene, Moritz; De Jong, Peter F.; Desrochers, Alain; Manolitsis, George; Parrila, Rauno; Georgiou, George K. – Scientific Studies of Reading, 2019
Although phonological awareness (PA) and rapid automatized naming (RAN) are confirmed as early predictors of reading in a large number of orthographies, it is as yet unclear whether the predictive patterns are universal or language specific. This was examined in a longitudinal study across Grades 1 and 2 with 1,120 children acquiring one of five…

Gentrup, Sarah; Rjosk, Camilla – Educational Research and Evaluation, 2018
This study examined the role of teacher expectations in the emerging gender gaps in reading and mathematics in the first year of schooling. Therefore, we first investigated whether boys and girls differ in their vulnerability to teacher expectancy effects. Second, we analysed whether gender-specific effects of teacher expectations contribute to…

Canbulat, Tuncay – Educational Research and Reviews, 2018
Comparative education studies within the perspective of globalization are seen as important studies, as they reveal the problems in education and show defective aspects of the systems applied in other countries. This way they improve the available system. The purpose of this research is to study the current curriculum of Life Science lesson within…

Robelo, Octaviano García; Pérez, Ileana Casasola – Bulgarian Comparative Education Society, 2017
This paper presents one product of a research report about the promotion of resilience in the school setting in two public secondary schools, located in Mexico and Germany, and its relation with the pupils' multiculturalism. The paper focuses on the need of the results' analysis to identify the school actors' perceptions of the promotion of…

Fricke, Silke; Szczerbinski, Marcin; Fox-Boyer, Annette; Stackhouse, Joy – Reading Research Quarterly, 2016
Phonological awareness, rapid automatized naming (RAN), letter knowledge, and oral language are all significant predictors of successful literacy acquisition in several languages. However, their relative importance is less clear and depends on language characteristics, the specific aspect of literacy assessed, and the phase of literacy…

Ebersbach, Mirjam; Luwel, Koen; Verschaffel, Lieven – Mathematical Thinking and Learning: An International Journal, 2015
Children's estimation skills on a bounded and unbounded number line task were assessed in the light of their familiarity with numbers. Kindergartners, first graders, and second graders (N = 120) estimated the position of numbers on a 1--100 number line, marked with either two reference points (i.e., 1 and 10: unbounded condition) or three…

Mayer, Andreas; Motsch, Hans-Joachim – Journal of Education and Learning, 2015
This study analysed the effects of a classroom intervention focusing on phonological awareness and/or automatized word recognition in children with a deficit in the domains of phonological awareness and rapid automatized naming ("double deficit"). According to the double-deficit hypothesis (Wolf & Bowers, 1999), these children belong…

Krull, Johanna; Wilbert, Jürgen; Hennemann, Thomas – Learning Disabilities: A Contemporary Journal, 2014
The inclusion of children with special educational needs (SEN) in general education classrooms in Europe due to education policy and social developments is currently up for debate, especially in Germany. This paper addresses whether or not co-education of students with and without classroom problems and/or disabilities has negative consequences…

Obersteiner, Andreas; Reiss, Kristina; Ufer, Stefan; Luwel, Koen; Verschaffel, Lieven – Cognition and Instruction, 2014
External number representations are commonly used throughout the first years of instruction. The twenty-frame is a grid that contains two rows of 10 dots each, and within each row, dots are organized in two groups of five. The assumption is that children can make use of these structures for enumerating the dots, rather than relying on one-by-one…

Rothe, Josefine; Schulte-Körne, Gerd; Ise, Elena – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2014
Recent studies focused on the influence of orthographic processing on reading and spelling performance. It was found that orthographic processing is an independent predictor of reading and spelling performance in different languages and children of different ages. This study investigated sensitivity to orthographic regularities in German-speaking…

Schmiedeler, Sandra; Niklas, Frank; Schneider, Wolfgang – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2014
The concept of "Home Learning Environment" (HLE) covers activities in a family providing intellectual stimulation for a child, such as reading to him or her or visiting libraries. Numerous studies have shown an association between HLE and children's cognitive development. In this longitudinal study, we focus on HLE as a predictor for…

Niklas, Frank; Schneider, Wolfgang – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2014
Mathematical competencies are important not only for academic achievement at school but also for professional success later in life. Although we know a lot about the impact of "Home Literacy Environment" on the development of early linguistic competencies, research on "Home Numeracy Environment" (HNE) and the assessment of its…

Suggate, Sebastian; Reese, Elaine; Lenhard, Wolfgang; Schneider, Wolfgang – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2014
Beginning readers in shallow orthographies acquire word reading skills more quickly than in deep orthographies like English. In addition to extending this evidence base by comparing reading acquisition in English with the more transparent German, we conducted a longitudinal study and investigated whether different early reading skills made…

Fritz, Annemarie; Balzer, Lars; Herholdt, Roelien; Ragpot, Lara; Ehlert, Antje – South African Journal of Childhood Education, 2014
This article presents the translation and adaptation process of a mathematics test for the acquisition of key mathematical (arithmetic) concepts by children from four to eight years of age. The origin of this test was in Germany, whence it was sourced by researchers at the University of Johannesburg. A conceptual model of hierarchical mathematics…

Niklas, Frank; Schneider, Wolfgang – Contemporary Educational Psychology, 2013
Reading and writing are necessary prerequisites for a successful school career. Therefore it is important to identify precursor variables which predict these abilities early in order to identify children possibly at risk of developing reading or spelling difficulties. Relevant precursors include letter knowledge, phonological awareness (PA),…
