Marôco, João – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2021
Using hierarchical linear models, this study probes into student, family, teacher, and schools' variables that can explain the variation in Progress in International Reading Literacy Study (PIRLS) 2016 results. Students' confidence in reading, early literacy tasks, and parents' expectations are the strongest explanatory variables of reading…

Vadasy, Patricia F.; Sanders, Elizabeth A. – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2021
Two experiments explored rates for introducing grapheme-phoneme correspondences (GPCs) and the types of correspondences taught for optimal alphabet and early literacy skills learning. In both studies, children entered with minimal alphabet knowledge and were randomly assigned within classrooms to one of two treatments delivered individually over…

Zhu, Xinhua; Li, Guan Ying; Cheong, Choo Mui; Yu, Guoxing; Liao, Xian – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2021
This study investigates the relationship between three discourse synthesis skills (i.e., quotation, summarization, and connection) and students' overall integrated writing performance in Chinese, students' first language, and English, their second language. Hierarchical regression analyses revealed that 63.6% of the variance in students' overall…

Pham, Giang T.; Snow, Catherine E. – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2021
Measures of decoding and oral language have been shown to predict early reading comprehension across a wide variety of languages, though the timeframe and strength of the predictions vary by orthographic depth. This study is the first to examine predictors of early reading in Vietnamese, a transparent orthography of Romanized letters and…

Pan, Jinger; Liu, Miaomiao; Li, Hong; Yan, Ming – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2021
Word boundary information is not marked explicitly in Chinese sentences and word ambiguity happens in Chinese texts. This introduces difficulty to parse characters into words when reading Chinese sentences, especially for beginning readers. In an eye-tracking study, we tested whether explicit word boundary information as provided by alternating…

Graham, Steve; Skar, Gustaf B.; Falk, Daroon Y. – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2021
A sample of 1049 Norwegian teachers in grades 1-3 were surveyed about how they taught writing as well as their preparation and efficacy to do so. Although there was moderate variability in their response to survey items, most teachers provided students with a multi-faceted writing program. Teachers indicated students typically spent 20 min a day…

van Rijt, Jimmy H. M.; van den Broek, Brenda; De Maeyer, Sven – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2021
Among other things, learning to write entails learning how to use complex sentences effectively in discourse. Some research has therefore focused on relating measures of syntactic complexity to text quality. Apart from the fact that the existing research on this topic appears inconclusive, most of it has been conducted in English L1 contexts. This…

Krepel, Alexander; de Bree, Elise H.; de Jong, Peter F. – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2021
Availability of orthography during word learning has been found to facilitate learning the word's spelling and pronunciation and has been proposed to facilitate learning its meaning. This has not been studied in second language (L2) learning yet, in which word learning often corresponds to translation learning. Therefore, an L2 word learning…

Critten, Sarah; Holliman, Andrew J.; Hughes, David J.; Wood, Clare; Cunnane, Helen; Pillinger, Claire; Deacon, S. Hélène – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2021
Prosodic sensitivity--the rhythmic patterning of speech--is theorized to influence reading and spelling via vocabulary knowledge, phonological, and morphological awareness. Previously this conceptual model has been evidenced with children who can already read, however as orthographic knowledge can be used to complete phonological awareness tasks…

Powell, Sarah R.; Hebert, Michael A.; Hughes, Elizabeth M. – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2021
Students in the elementary and secondary grades may use mathematics writing to express ideas and reasoning about mathematics. To understand current classroom practices related to the assessment and instruction of mathematics writing, we conducted a survey of kindergarten through Grade 12 educators across the United States who taught mathematics,…

Hallberg, Andreas; Niehorster, Diederick C. – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2021
Morphologically marked case is in Arabic a feature exclusive to the variety of Standard Arabic, with no parallel in the spoken varieties, and it is orthographically marked only on some word classes in specific grammatical situations. In this study we test the hypothesis that readers of Arabic do not parse sentences for case and that…

Greiner de Magalhães, Caroline; Mervis, Carolyn B.; Cardoso-Martins, Cláudia – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2021
We examined the contribution of a major predictor of basic literacy ability--phoneme awareness--to individual differences in two arithmetic computation tasks: a speeded task consisting of simple computation problems (arithmetic fluency) and an untimed, more complex computation task involving multi-digit operands (numerical operations). The…

Ravid, Dorit; Schiff, Rachel – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2021
Grammatical awareness of syntax and morphology is important in children's literacy development for both reading and writing. Hebrew, a language with rich inflectional morphology, marks nouns for plural number in conjunction with gender. Hebrew attributive adjectives agree with noun number and gender in the same noun phrase, while predicative…

Quinn, Margaret F.; Bingham, Gary E.; Gerde, Hope K. – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2021
Conceptual models of early writing suggest multiple component skills support children's early writing development. Although research interest in early writing skills has grown in recent years, the majority of studies focus narrowly on procedural knowledge or transcription skills (i.e., handwriting and spelling) to the relative exclusion of how…

Chen, Jiangping; Zhang, Yang; Hu, Jie – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2021
This study examined the combined effects of teachers' instructional practices and students' reading-related affective engagement on predicting the high and low levels of elementary reading literacy from a linguistically and culturally comparative perspective. Data were based on 9748 students from 4 English-speaking and 3 Chinese-speaking education…
