Tang, Hengtao; Clariana, Roy – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2017
This descriptive exploratory study considers whether a simple sorting task can elicit readers' knowledge structure in learners' first and second language. In this investigation, knowledge structure is considered from a symbolic connectionist viewpoint as the fundamental pre-meaningful aspect of knowledge, where structure is the precursor of…

Russo, James; Hopkins, Sarah – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2017
The current investigation systematically contrasted teaching with cognitively demanding (challenging) tasks using a task-first lesson structure with that of a teach-first lesson structure in a primary school setting (Year 1 and 2). The findings indicate that there is more than one way of incorporating challenge tasks into mathematics lessons to…

Montgomery, Bette – Journal of Family and Consumer Sciences, 2020
Communication is the foundation of professional relationships and collaborative teams within family and consumer sciences (FCS) (Mitstifer, 2014). These relationships and collaborative work may be facilitated through communicative actions. Educational structure is needed to intentionally focus on communicative actions in undergraduate coursework.…

Tolchinsky, Liliana – Journal of Literacy Research, 2019
Learning to compose texts adequate for different purposes is crucial for becoming literate. We examined developmental changes in the rhetorical structure of written texts produced by Spanish children throughout the early years of elementary school in the light of descriptive writing purposes. Children had also performed tasks to test…

Paul, Noel M.; Yoder, Ryan J.; Callam, Christopher S. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
Fluency in both the construction and interpretation of molecular structures is a critical learning objective in the second-year organic chemistry curriculum. With the introduction of PerkinElmer's ChemDraw structure drawing tool into undergraduate laboratory courses, students are challenged to develop fundamental molecular drawing skills using…

Spinner, Patti; Jung, Sehoon – Studies in Second Language Acquisition, 2018
The purpose of this study was to determine whether processability theory (PT; Pienemann, 1998, 2005) accounts for the emergence of grammatical forms and structures in comprehension. Sixty-one learners of English participated in oral interviews that elicited a variety of structures relevant to PT. Learners were divided into two groups: those who…

Shaklee, Harriet; Demarest, Diane – Journal of Extension, 2019
Wooden planks are a tool for developing youth skills through science, technology, engineering, and math exploration. These are small planks that can be stacked to create complex structures as youths explore math and physical relationships in an applied context. Building with wooden planks also cultivates planning, reasoning, and team skills as…

McCluskey, Catherine; Mulligan, Joanne; Van Bergen, Penny – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2019
An awareness of pattern and structure (AMPS) is critical in young children's mathematical development (Mulligan & Mitchelmore, 2009). AMPS is formally assessed in the early years of school (K-3), in structured conditions using predetermined materials, requiring verbal and written responses. However, children also express mathematical thinking…

van Rensburg, Angelique C.; Theron, Linda C.; Ungar, Michael – Research on Social Work Practice, 2019
Purpose: The factor structure of the Child and Youth Resilience Measure (CYRM-28) was originally established using a Canadian sample. This factor structure was not confirmed in a study with New Zealand youth. Given such variability, the current study investigated the factor structure of the CYRM-28 in a sample of Sesotho-speaking South African…

Acan, Sinan Can; Acan, Naciye Leyla – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2019
Recently, manuscripts that use bioinformatics tools to convert proteins and other biological materials into music have appeared in several journals. The authors claim that this type of studies adds joy to education of life sciences and attract public attention to biochemistry education along with other uses. We thought the reverse of the process…

Staats, Susan – Research in Mathematics Education, 2017
Poetic structures emerge in spoken language when speakers repeat grammatical phrases that were spoken before. They create the potential to amend or comment on previous speech, and to convey meaning through the structure of discourse. This paper considers the ways in which poetic structure analysis contributes to two perspectives on emergent…

Nitchot, Athitaya; Wettayaprasit, Wiphada; Gilbert, Lester – E-Learning and Digital Media, 2019
The aim of this research is to introduce a method of constructing knowledge structures which represent the relationships among the knowledge items in a pedagogically useful way. A prototype, "MyTeLeMap," was implemented to support both learners and instructors. Learners could visualize the knowledge structures of different knowledge…
