A survey of undergraduate students found that their self-reported allocation of time to academic activities other than reading was positively correlated to the reading that they did and that students’ reading was significantly correlated to their belief of being time constrained. Furthermore, the study found that students’ participation in non...

Although learning spaces research is not new, research approaches that target the specific teaching and learning experiences of faculty and students who occupy active learning classrooms (ALCs) is nascent. We report on two novels data collection approaches: Flashbacks and Re-captures.

Findings suggest that in ALCs, faculty are easily able to ...

The framework is applicable across the curriculum and enables students to approach coursework with an organized plan and reflection. While the aim is to support self-directed and autodidactic learne...

Facilitating students’ acquisition of higherorder thinking skills is imperative in the 21st century. Although some types of text have been shown to enhance higherorder thinking, the effects of many novel forms of text have yet to be investigated. As such, the purpose of the present study was to explore the extent to which a relatively novel form of text (i.e., intratextual persuasive message) served as a catalyst for students’ higherorder thinking as evidenced in the quantity, quality, and conte...

In turn, this objective for teaching and learning also presumes that students interact with social studies material from fixed and definable cultures, identities, and family structures, as well as in accordance with normalized behavioral expectations for students in school. Children ...

A transactional strategy instruction approach is described and suggested for educators to employ as they teach students elaborative strategies. Several strategies known to e...

Effective communications between schools and family members about curricular concerns can positively impact students’ performance across behavioral, academic, and social domains. Moreover, family involvement in schooling may be more important for children with disabilities, especially students with severe emotional and behavioral concerns, such as with Reactive Attachment Disorder (RAD). Students with RAD present some of the most challenging behaviors to school personnel. In turn, needs of stude...
