Jap, Bernard A. J.; Borleffs, Elisabeth; Maassen, Ben A. M. – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2017
With its transparent orthography, Standard Indonesian is spoken by over 160 million inhabitants and is the primary language of instruction in education and the government in Indonesia. An assessment battery of reading and reading-related skills was developed as a starting point for the diagnosis of dyslexia in beginner learners. Founded on the…

Purpura, David J.; Napoli, Amy R.; Wehrspann, Elizabeth A.; Gold, Zachary S. – Journal of Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2017
The acquisition of early mathematical knowledge is critical for successful long-term academic development. Mathematical language is one of the strongest predictors of children's early mathematical success. Findings from previous studies have provided correlational evidence supporting the importance of mathematical language to the development of…

Walkowiak, Temple A.; Pinter, Holly H.; Berry, Robert Q. – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2017
We present a reconceptualized framework for opportunity to learn (OTL) in school mathematics that builds on previous conceptualizations of OTL and includes features related to both quantity (i.e., time) and quality. Our framework draws on existing literature and on our own observational research of mathematics teaching practices. Through the…

Purwanta, Hieronymus – Journal of Educational Media, Memory and Society, 2017
This study examines the year-to-year development of militaristic discourse in Indonesian secondary education history textbooks since 1975. Historical descriptions written since the fall of Soeharto's military regime and its replacement by a civilian government in 1998 tend to emphasize Indonesia's military history and pay little attention to its…

Kofi-Davis, Ernest – For the Learning of Mathematics, 2017
Mathematics is often positioned as being difficult for Ghanaian teachers to teach and pupils to learn. Although literature point to the educational and scientific relevance of many of the socio-cultural practices in the Ghanaian society, many mathematical concepts are taught out of context in schools. In this paper I will draw on Bishop's (1988)…

Komatsu, Kotaro; Fujita, Taro; Jones, Keith; Naoki, Sue – For the Learning of Mathematics, 2018
Kitcher's idea of 'explanatory unification', while originally proposed in the philosophy of science, may also be relevant to mathematics education, as a way of enhancing student thinking and achieving classroom activity that is closer to authentic mathematical practice. There is, however, no mathematics education research treating explanatory…
