Examining Teachers’ Perceptions Of Effective Writing Strategies And Barriers To Implementation, K M. White, Anna H. Hall Mar 2015

Examining Teachers’ Perceptions Of Effective Writing Strategies And Barriers To Implementation, K M. White, Anna H. Hall

Anna H Hall

For years researchers have sought to better understand how children successfully acquire literacy skills. While much attention has been paid to children’s early reading development, less attention has been paid to children’s writing development (Clay, 2001). Writing is a complex and demanding task for children (Lienemann et al., 2006). It involves a great deal of cognitive effort, attentional control, and self-regulation (Graham & Harris, 2003) as children must use and integrate a variety of skills and processes, while also attempting to make their writing meaningful for the intended audience. Given this complexity, children need strong instructional support to create ...

Using Data To Make Decisions About Student Services, Tonisha B. Lane, Larry D. Long

Larry D. Long

First-generation and low-income students are increasingly matriculating into post-secondary education. Acclimating first-generation and low-income students to higher education presents unique challenges and opportunities to improve institutional support and services. This program will inform participants about how Michigan State University used multiple data sources to assess, intervene, and support students from first-generation and low-income backgrounds involved in the Student Success Initiative. This program adds to the emerging conversation on using data to understand students and make decisions about student services.

"I'M Not Allowed To Write About That In School But At Home I Can": Examining Elementary School Students' Attitudes Toward Writing Instruction, Anna H. Hall, Ysaaca Axelrod Feb 2015

"I'M Not Allowed To Write About That In School But At Home I Can": Examining Elementary School Students' Attitudes Toward Writing Instruction, Anna H. Hall, Ysaaca Axelrod

Anna H Hall

Research on writing indicates that children’s attitudes about writing have an impact on their writing achievement (Knudson, 1995; Graham, Berninger & Fan, 2007). At the same time, we see the narrowing of curricular practices, especially in literacy, giving children less input into their educational experience and fewer choices about how and what they are learning (Genishi & Dyson, 2012). The purpose of this study was to examine children’s attitudes towards writing and the experiences that have shaped these attitudes and their identities as writers. We conducted grade level focus group interviews with children in an elementary school to learn more ...


“She Never Lets Me Write About It”: Children’S Perspectives On “Choice” In Their Writing Curriculum, Ysaaca Axelrod, Anna H. Hall Feb 2015

“She Never Lets Me Write About It”: Children’S Perspectives On “Choice” In Their Writing Curriculum, Ysaaca Axelrod, Anna H. Hall

Anna H Hall

Legislation and policies such as No Child Left Behind, Race to the Top, and the adoption of Common Core State Standards (CCSS) by the majority of states directly impact the educational experiences of children in classrooms. Current shifts in the U.S. education system include a greater focus on preparing all students to be college and career ready with increased expectations for teachers and children. With shifts in the curriculum and standards comes increased attention on writing performance, with a particular focus on measuring and tracking individual children’s progress in order to then evaluate teachers and classrooms (http://www ...

Creating Space: Pedagogical Choices To Encourage A Third Space In An Urban, Kindergarten Science Classroom, Cassie F. Quigley, Anna H. Hall

Anna H Hall

“The butterfly is in the chrysalis stage,” Victory informed us as she pointed to the brown chrysalis in the jar on the lab bench, “It was an egg then it formed its chrysalis or pupa and then it will become a butterfly.” When we asked her how she would describe this to her friends, she remarked, “It is like when you go into the dressing room and put on a church dress- you act like someone different.” In this example, Victory, a kindergartener, was translating the scientific language taught to her in the science classroom into a language her friends ...
