Molle, Daniella – Teacher Education Quarterly, 2013
For more than a decade, the professional development literature has shown that most teachers are not adequately prepared to teach English learners (ELs)--that holds true for both specialist and mainstream teachers (see, for example, August & Hakuta, 1997; Beykont, 2002). Research that focuses on professional development for teachers of ELs,…

Sanford, Alison J. S.; Sanford, Anthony J.; Molle, Jo; Emmott, Catherine – Discourse Processes: A Multidisciplinary Journal, 2006
Processing of discourse seems to be far from uniform with much evidence indicating that it can be quite shallow. The question is then what modulates depth of processing? A range of discourse devices exist that we believe may lead to more detailed processing of language input (Attention Capturers), thus serving as modulators of processing enabling…

The present experiments apply the same…
