Research-based principles for adult basic education reading instruction by John Kruidenier( Book )

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 430 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report presents results from an analysis of the adult basic education (abe) reading instruction research base, focusing on principles derived from the research and a future research agenda. After an introduction, Chapter 2 presents methods used to select and evaluate research related to abe reading instruction. Chapter 3 serves as an index to the abe and k-12 reading instruction research findings that appear in Chapters 4-9. Chapters 4-8 focus on these major aspects of reading instruction: assessing students to describe their reading "profiles" or overall reading ability; alphabetics instruction; fluency instruction; vocabulary instruction; and reading comprehension. Computer technology is covered in Chapter 9. Each chapter presents these items: (1) a description of the major aspect of reading covered, including a definition and rationale and, when appropriate, assessment; (2) major questions related to abe reading instruction associated with specific topics of interest to abe practitioners; (3) answers to questions in the form of emerging principles or trends when research addressed the questions; (4) summary of the research related to each principle or trend; and (5) ideas (and comments) for abe reading instruction derived from k-12 reading instruction research. Chapter 10 summarizes important findings and presents an agenda for future research. Appendixes include 25 background references and 71 study references. (Ylb)
Using research and reason in education : how teachers can use scientifically based research to make curricular & instructional decisions by Paula J Stanovich( Book )

4 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 419 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As professionals, teachers can become more effective and powerful by developing the skills to recognize scientifically based practice and, when the evidence is not available, use some basic research concepts to draw conclusions on their own. This paper offers a primer for those skills that will allow teachers to become independent evaluators of educational research. (Author)

Proven ideas from research for parents
Strategies for keeping kids in school : evaluation of dropout prevention and reentry projects in vocational education : final report by Becky Jon Hayward( Book )

2 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 333 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An evaluation was conducted of a 3-year demonstration program the purpose of which was to demonstrate the efficacy of projects that included vocational education as a key component in encouraging at-risk youth to remain in or return to school. Six of the 10 project grantees, funded under the Cooperative Demonstration Program of the Carl D. Perkins Vocational Education Act, were evaluated, using process and outcome information from 12 localities. The study found that only one-third of the projects achieved significant reduction in the number of participants who dropped out of school. Projects were generally more successful, however, in improving participants' school performance and affiliation, with 10 of the 12 demonstrating increases in participants' grade point average, 7 showing reduction in number of courses failed, and 7 showing improvements in participants' perceptions of the safety of their school environment. Among the components that appeared to be critical for improving the persistence and educational success of at-risk youth are the following: (1) a smaller, more personal environment, such as that available in the school-within-a-school and alternative school environments; (2) a structured environment that includes clear and equitably enforced behavioral expectations; (3) vocational education that integrates academic education and leads to good entry-level jobs or continued training at the postsecondary level; (4) formal, ongoing coordination of the academic and vocational components of participants' high school programs; (5) a formal counseling component that incorporates attention to personal issues along with career counseling, employability and life skills instruction; and (6) personal, supportive attention from adults through mentoring or similar projects. (The report includes separate evaluations of each site, 13 tables, and 3 appendixes that report on the study methodology.) (Kc)

Chapter 1 Schoolwide Project Study : final report by E. Allen Schenck( Book )

3 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 249 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Chapter 1 schoolwide projects are intended to serve educationally disadvantaged students by improving the instructional program provided to all students in high-poverty schools. This report provides a comprehensive look at schoolwide projects in the 1991-92 school year, using data from surveys of all schoolwide project schools. The response rate was 93 percent for school district questionnaires and 91 percent for school building questionnaires. Site visits to six project sites provided additional information. Chapter 1 schools tend to be located in large urban, high-poverty school districts with a high proportion of minority students. Eighty percent of students in project schools are Black or Hispanic, and 20 percent are Limited English Proficient. Schools have implemented schoolwide projects to be able to serve more students with more flexibility in use of resources as well as to avoid restrictions on service delivery. The most popular strategies for schoolwide projects included parent education and involvement projects, staff development, and computer assisted instruction. It appears that the schoolwide projects approach is leading to better achievement gains by educationally disadvantaged students. Thirty-three tables present survey findings. Five appendixes present survey questions and methodology, tabulations of responses, and a discussion of common themes. (Sld)
