The study reported here investigated reading among students from the perspective of how students choose to use their time and whether they self-ration it. 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. Both leverage faculty reflective practice and provide windows into the rich and varied teaching and learning activities that active learning spaces afford. Findings suggest that in ALCs, faculty are easily able to ...

Abstract In this chapter, a framework is provided to guide students in developing a consistent approach to completing assignments. Not only does the framework provide a study structure, but it also suggests technologies to support students as they manage, monitor, and adapt their learning strategies. 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...

Teachers in this content area are expected to interact with students from diverse backgrounds while helping students to a...

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...

Social studies is a school subject that aims to enmesh local and global concerns and ways of understanding the world. It is a complex task to position local concerns and perspectives within an intercultural vantage. 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 ...

AbstractTheoretical and empirical support for the benefits of elaborative strategy instruction for middle level students is highlighted. Consistent with the Keys of Educating Young Adolescents, teaching elaborative strategies enhances academic achievement, engages learners, and empowers students’ future independent learning. A transactional strategy instruction approach is described and suggested for educators to employ as they teach students elaborative strategies. Several strategies known to e...
