10 Resources For Getting Elementary Students Interested In Reading | Edudemic

10 Resources For Getting Elementary Students Interested In Reading | Edudemic | MOOC4teachers | Scoop.it

Posted by Dawn Casey-Rowe

 

"This week’s Learnist Top 10 is dedicated to material and experiences that develop or enrich elementary students in reading, writing, and research. It features several boards from elementary blended learning expert Carrie Sorenson, material from homeschooling mom Kimberly Charron, and boards that reinforce reading and writing through art, cooking, and other experiences. Integrating experiences into student’s worlds makes them more interested in reading and literacy."

Infographic: The Power of Suggestion

Infographic: The Power of Suggestion | MOOC4teachers | Scoop.it

 

Abstract of the research study upon which this infographic is based (title of study is in the lower left-hand corner of the graphic):

 

"Recent randomized experiments have found that seemingly “small” social-psychological interventions in education—that is, brief exercises that target students’ thoughts, feelings, and beliefs in and about school—can lead to large gains in student achievement and sharply reduce achievement gaps even months and years later. These interventions do not teach students academic content but instead target students’ psychology, such as their beliefs that they have the potential to improve their intelligence or that they belong and are valued in school. When social-psychological interventions have lasting effects, it can seem surprising and even “magical,” leading people either to think of them as quick fixes to complicated problems or to consider them unworthy of serious consideration. The present article discourages both responses. It reviews the theoretical basis of several prominent social-psychological interventions and emphasizes that they have lasting effects because they target students’ subjective experiences in school, because they use persuasive yet stealthy methods for conveying psychological ideas, and because they tap into recursive processes present in educational environments. By understanding psychological interventions as powerful but context-dependent tools, educational researchers will be better equipped to take them to scale. This review concludes by discussing challenges to scaling psychological interventions and how these challenges may be overcome."
