Duncan, Greg J.; Jenkins, Jade M.; Watts, Tyler W.; Magnuson, Katherine; Clements, Douglas; Sarama, Julie; Wolfe, Christopher B.; Spitler, Mary Elaine – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2015
A substantial literature documents the benefits of early childhood education and formal preschool experiences on children's school readiness, with low-income and otherwise disadvantaged children benefitting the most from these programs. However, these academic benefits often fade out as children age, and most disappear by the end of kindergarten…

Oliveira, Alandeom W. – International Journal of Environmental and Science Education, 2015
This study examines student reading engagement with children's science books in elementary classrooms. "Reading engagement" in science is conceived in terms of a Transmission-Transaction continuum. When centered on transmission, science reading entails passive reception of a textually encoded scientific message. By contrast, when science…

What Works Clearinghouse, 2013
"Saxon Math," published by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, is a core curriculum for students in grades K-5. A distinguishing feature of the curriculum is its use of an incremental approach for instruction and assessment. This approach limits the amount of new math content delivered to students each day and allows time for daily practice. New…

Herrmann, Patricia A.; French, Jason A.; DeHart, Ganie B.; Rosengren, Karl S. – Merrill-Palmer Quarterly: Journal of Developmental Psychology, 2013
Biological kinds undergo a variety of changes during their life span, and these changes vary in degree by organism. Understanding that an organism, such as a caterpillar, maintains category identity over its life span despite dramatic changes is a key concept in biological reasoning. At present, we know little about the developmental trajectory of…
