Wills, Howard P.; Mason, Rose; Gregori, Emily; Veatch, Melissa – Elementary School Journal, 2019
The limitations and challenges of paraprofessional training are well documented. These issues are magnified by the increasing reliance on paraprofessionals to provide vital support for students with emotional and behavioral disorders (EBD). Despite evidence supporting self-monitoring for improving teacher and paraprofessional skills, there are…

This study examined the effects of coping power (CP) and the combination of CP with check-in/check-out (CICO) to determine whether the addition of CICO as a classroom component enhances the effects of CP alone. CP was delivered outside the classroom by research assistants, and all CICO components were implemented by classroom teachers. We…

We reviewed the literature on function-based interventions (FBIs) implemented by school personnel in K-8 general education settings with a focus on intervention implementation. We identified 34 studies (70 students and FBIs) that met criteria for this review. For more than half of studies and participants, FBIs were implemented by general…

The purposes of this study were (a) to test the efficacy of whole-class equal-sign instruction, (b) to contrast the effects of symbolic and nonsymbolic instructional representation, (c) to determine whether visual representation compensated for language deficits, and (d) to evaluate maintenance of intervention. We randomly assigned 195 children…

Hirsch, Shanna E.; Lloyd, John Wills; Kennedy, Michael J. – Elementary School Journal, 2019
Employing universal classroom management practices (e.g., opportunities to respond, praise, precorrect) can reduce disruptive behavior and improve academic engagement for students with and without disabilities; however, novice educators often possess minimal knowledge of universal classroom management practices. This study examined the effect of a…

In this case study, we investigate upper elementary teachers' decision-making practices regarding grouping configurations and purposes set for small group instruction (SGI) across content areas. Five experienced teachers working in linguistically and culturally diverse settings participated in this study. Data analyses with regard to student…

Grimm, Ryan; Solari, Emily J.; Gerber, Michael M.; Nylund-Gibson, Karen; Swanson, H. Lee – Elementary School Journal, 2019
Research with English monolinguals has identified key subskills of reading comprehension that can differentiate subgroups of readers. There remains a dearth of research examining these subskills in Spanish-speaking bilingual students, and few studies have identified subgroups of readers whose home language is Spanish. This study used latent…

Silvestri, Katarina N.; McVee, Mary B.; Jarmark, Christopher J.; Shanahan, Lynn E.; Pytlak-Surdyke, Marissa; English, Kenneth – Elementary School Journal, 2019
Educational policies seek to integrate engineering instruction within elementary school settings. This becomes challenging for elementary school leaders and teachers, as few have previous teacher preparation or professional development experience with engineering content or processes. Although studies have considered teacher identity in relation…

Kim, Jung-In; De Long, Shauna P. A.; Ortega, Mari C.; Kelly, Larissa A.; Casias, Marcelino; Dray, Barbara J. – Elementary School Journal, 2019
This study examined 10 urban middle school teachers' practices to motivate their emergent bilingual students (or English-language learners) and the ways in which their practices were associated with their positioning of their students in reading intervention classrooms. Our findings showed that teacher positioning that afforded or constrained…

Louick, Rebecca; Daley, Samantha G.; Robinson, Kristin H. – Elementary School Journal, 2019
Teachers' thought processes are critical in the adoption of any new teaching practices, including those emphasizing students' autonomous motivation. Teachers' experiences may be particularly important in classes for struggling readers, as these educators must not only support students' development of autonomous learning skills but also deliver…

Jones, Nathan D.; Bettini, Elizabeth; Brownell, Mary – Elementary School Journal, 2019
Collaborative school reforms and teacher evaluation reforms both show promise for improving teaching and learning in American schools.
