Orthographic and linguistic knowledge are known predictors of reading and writing, yet little research with adolescent readers explores how such knowledge predicts reading and writing in a single model. We worked with 583 adolescent readers in remedial reading classes in grades 6-8 to collect indicators of orthographic and linguistic knowledge as…

Miller, Jason M.; Youngs, Peter; Perrone, Frank; Grogan, Erin – Elementary School Journal, 2020
A school's performance over time is shaped by its ability to retain strong teachers. Research has identified multiple predictors associated with teacher retention; however, few studies have investigated the association between person-organization and person-group fit and teacher retention. The purpose of this study is to investigate the…

Leyva, Diana; Tamis-LeMonda, Catherine S.; Yoshikawa, Hirokazu – Elementary School Journal, 2019
We examined associations between maternal writing support, math support, and directiveness and children's literacy and math outcomes. Participants were 208 African American, Dominican, Mexican, and Chinese mothers and their first-grade children from low-income households. Mothers were video-recorded playing a grocery game with their children…

Students' early school experiences have a significant and long-term effect on key academic and social/behavioral outcomes. Evidence-based programs that both increase the quantity and quality of positive teacher-student interactions and decrease the frequency of negative teacher-student interactions may be critical for changing negative patterns…

Wills, Howard P.; Mason, Rose; Gregori, Emily; Veatch, Melissa – Elementary School Journal, 2019
The limitations and challenges of paraprofessional training are well documented. These issues are magnified by the increasing reliance on paraprofessionals to provide vital support for students with emotional and behavioral disorders (EBD). Despite evidence supporting self-monitoring for improving teacher and paraprofessional skills, there are…

McDaniel, Sara C.; Bruhn, Allison L. – Elementary School Journal, 2019
This study examined the effects of coping power (CP) and the combination of CP with check-in/check-out (CICO) to determine whether the addition of CICO as a classroom component enhances the effects of CP alone. CP was delivered outside the classroom by research assistants, and all CICO components were implemented by classroom teachers. We…

Lloyd, Blair P.; Barton, Erin E.; Ledbetter-Cho, Katherine; Pennington, Brittany; Pokorski, Elizabeth A. – Elementary School Journal, 2019
We reviewed the literature on function-based interventions (FBIs) implemented by school personnel in K-8 general education settings with a focus on intervention implementation. We identified 34 studies (70 students and FBIs) that met criteria for this review. For more than half of studies and participants, FBIs were implemented by general…

Chow, Jason C.; Wehby, Joseph H. – Elementary School Journal, 2019
The purposes of this study were (a) to test the efficacy of whole-class equal-sign instruction, (b) to contrast the effects of symbolic and nonsymbolic instructional representation, (c) to determine whether visual representation compensated for language deficits, and (d) to evaluate maintenance of intervention. We randomly assigned 195 children…

Hirsch, Shanna E.; Lloyd, John Wills; Kennedy, Michael J. – Elementary School Journal, 2019
Employing universal classroom management practices (e.g., opportunities to respond, praise, precorrect) can reduce disruptive behavior and improve academic engagement for students with and without disabilities; however, novice educators often possess minimal knowledge of universal classroom management practices. This study examined the effect of a…
