Driscoll, Dana Lynn; Jin, Daewoo – Across the Disciplines, 2018
This article draws upon Bergmann and Zepernick's (2007) metaphor of the box under the bed to investigate the relationship between students' epistemologies and their learning transfer in diverse contexts over undergraduate years. We present a systemic analysis of 13 students' interviews and writing samples over a five-year period, through which we…

Sanchez, Alfonso Corbacho; Magro, Luis Javier Conejero – Cypriot Journal of Educational Sciences, 2018
This article proves statistically the effectiveness of humour in the teaching of English and German to Spanish students of foreign languages. The referred lexicon is particularly troublemaking because of the difficulties that such vocabulary poses for Spanish learners of not-Latin-originated languages. The approach followed is a quantitative and…

Yamagata, Satoshi – Language Teaching Research, 2018
The present study investigated the effects of two types of core-image-based basic verb learning approaches: the learner-centered and the teacher-centered approaches. The learner-centered approach was an activity in which participants found semantic relationships among several definitions of each basic target verb through a picture-elucidated card…

Moon, Soyeon; Oh, Sun-Young – ReCALL, 2018
This paper reports on the cognitive and affective benefits of data-driven learning (DDL), in which Korean EFL learners at the secondary level notice and unlearn their "overgenerated 'be'" by comparing native English-speaker and learner corpora with guided induction. To select the target language item and compile learner-corpus-based…

Racsmány, Mihály; Szollosi, Ágnes; Bencze, Dorottya – Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition, 2018
The "testing effect" refers to the striking phenomenon that repeated retrieval practice is one of the most effective learning strategies, and certainly more advantageous for long-term learning, than additional restudying of the same information. How retrieval can boost the retention of memories is still without unanimous explanation. In…

Bradshaw, William S.; Groneman, Kathryn J.; Nelson, Jennifer; Bell, John D. – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2018
This article describes efforts aimed at improving comprehension and retention of complex molecular mechanisms commonly studied in undergraduate biology and biochemistry courses. The focus is on the design of appropriate assessments, an active classroom emphasizing formative practice, and more effective out-of-class study habits. Assessments that…

Ricker, Aaron; Peterfeso, Jill; Zubko, Katherine C.; Yoo, William; Blanchard, Kate – Teaching Theology & Religion, 2018
In our ostensibly secular age, discussing the real-world contexts and impacts of religious traditions in the classroom can be difficult. Religious traditions may appear at different times to different students as too irrelevant, too personal, or too inflammatory to allow them to engage openly with the materials, the issues, and each other. In this…

Aguilar, Jessica M.; Plante, Elena; Sandoval, Michelle – Language, Speech, and Hearing Services in Schools, 2018
Purpose: Variability in the input plays an important role in language learning. The current study examined the role of object variability for new word learning by preschoolers with specific language impairment (SLI). Method: Eighteen 4- and 5-year-old children with SLI were taught 8 new words in 3 short activities over the course of 3 sessions.…

Schebell, Shannon; Shepley, Collin; Mataras, Theologia; Wunderlich, Kara – Topics in Early Childhood Special Education, 2018
Children with communication delays often display difficulties labeling stimuli in their environment, particularly related to actions. Research supports direct instruction with video and picture stimuli for increasing children's action labeling repertoires; however, no studies have compared which type of stimuli results in more efficient,…

Bennett, Rebecca Iranzo; Egan, Helen; Cook, Amy; Mantzios, Michail – Higher Education for the Future, 2018
Higher education students experience heightened levels of stress and anxiety, and report experiencing negative thoughts and emotions, which influence information retention and recall. In a randomized experiment, we assigned participants to either a mindfulness meditation or an audiobook listening condition, and recorded the information recalled…

Okulu, Hasan Zühtü; Ünver, Ayse Oguz – International Education Studies, 2018
The current research is to give an example to the inquiry-based science teaching implementations for facilitating knowledge acquisition and retention in a short period of time. Thus, the aim of the research is to transfer of acquired knowledge into different situations using sequential inquiry activities, which have challenging questions for…

Levin-Banchik, Luba – Journal of Political Science Education, 2018
This study examines the effectiveness of teaching with simulations, compared to active learning without simulations. It utilizes an anonymous extra-credit pop quiz on four topics, each taught with a different method: (1) simulation and in-class debriefing; (2) simulation only; (3) in-class discussions with an accompanying research essay; and (4)…

McQuillan, Jeff; Ediger, Warren – Reading Matrix: An International Online Journal, 2018
There is considerable evidence that incidental vocabulary acquisition through reading accounts for a large portion of the growth in word knowledge for both first (L1) and second (L2) language acquirers. In this paper, we evaluate the Markov Estimate of Semantic Association (MESA) technique for detecting small, incremental gains in vocabulary…

Özkubat, S.; Ulutas, I. – Educational Studies, 2018
The aim of the present study was to investigate the effect of the "Visual Awareness Education Programme" developed to support the visual literacy skills of preschool children. The study group comprised 40 children (20 children in the experimental group and 20 children in the control group) attending preschool in the 2014-2015 school…
