Higgins, Michael; Lieberman, Amy M. – Journal of Education, 2016
Deaf children have traditionally been perceived and educated as a special needs population. Over the past several decades, many factors have converged to enable a shift in perspective to one in which deaf children are viewed as a cultural and linguistic minority, and the education of deaf children is approached from a bilingual framework. This…

Wagner, Christopher J. – Journal of Education, 2016
Although young dual language students (DLLs) learn to write and use language expressively in ways that differ from monolingual English speakers, these differences are rarely addressed in curricula and instruction. In particular, despite a recent shift in attention to how identities shape literacy practices and motivations, common frameworks for…

Snow, Catherine; O'Connor, Catherine – Journal of Education, 2016
One reaction to the Common Core State Standards is a new emphasis on "close reading," an approach to teaching comprehension that requires students to extract meaning from text by examining how language is used in a passage. The intent is to strengthen their ability to learn from complex text independently and thus enhance college and…

In this article,…

Alvermann, Donna E.; Price, LaTasha Hutcherson; Jackson, A. J. – Journal of Education, 2016
By definition, an epilogue is a concluding segment of a literary work that often describes the futures of its main characters. It can also be a short speech at the end of a play or musical interlude that addresses the audience directly. Leaning in the direction of the latter, we propose as writers of this epilogue to engage in a bit of poetic…

Muhammad, Gholnecsar E. – Journal of Education, 2015
Coupling Royster's (2000) conceptual framework of "zamani" with Rosenblatt's (1978) reader response theory, the researcher explores the ways African American women's writings supported, nurtured, and "mentored" the writings of adolescent girls. Findings show that the mentor texts helped in generating ideas for writing, thinking…

Muhammad, Gholnecsar E.; Tatum, Alfred W. – Journal of Education, 2015
In much the same way that distant whispers are in need of echoes, scholarship needs to grow or be refashioned by new scholars who can bring fresh perspectives and new critiques to existing scholarship. These perspectives and critiques are required because of inevitable shifts in educational and social contexts and human understandings. It becomes…

A systemic analysis of early childhood development factors explains the variance in school readiness among representative U.S. 5-year-olds.
