    Learning how much quality is necessary to get to good results in children

    1/9/10 - National Center for Research on Early Childhood Education,

    "How good does an early childhood program have to be in order to achieve school readiness outcomes for children? This is known as the “threshold question,” and policy makers and others have wanted an answer to this question since the onset of public investments in early care and education (ECE) programs. With expansion of Head Start and pre-kindergarten programs for three- and four-year-old children, this question is getting even more attention."

  • Literacy on the Edge: How Close Are We to Closing the Literacy Achievement Gap?

    1/1/05 - Alvermann, Donna E.

    Part of a special section on closing the achievement gap. Educators can help close the literacy gap between ill-served students and their better-served peers. As children with reading difficulties move up through the grades, they present more and harder challenges to their teachers. These frustrated teachers sometimes resort to expecting less of these students in exchange for the students' good will and reasonable effort in completing class assignments that typically require little, if any...

  • Literacy Specialists in Math Class! Closing the Achievement Gap on State Math Assessments

    1/1/05 - DiGisi, Lori L., Fleming, Dianne

    Part of a special section on closing the achievement gap. A series of lessons have been developed to help English language learners and standard curriculum students improve their mathematical literacy so that they can answer problems on the Massachusetts state math assessment. Working in the math classroom, the literacy specialist aimed to teach students to recognize the types of vocabulary used in math questions and reinforce math vocabulary, provide students with strategies for reading the...

  • On "gap gazing" in mathematics education: The need for gaps analyses

    1/1/08 - Lubienski, Sarah Theule

    Analyses of disparities in students' mathematics experiences and outcomes are an essential part of efforts to promote equity. Scholars concerned about equity should not write off such analyses as mere "gap gazing." Research on gaps between underserved groups and their more advantaged peers are important for shaping public opinion and informing education policy. Analyses of gaps also inform mathematics education research and practice, illuminating which groups and curricular areas are most in...

  • Parent educational investment and children’s general knowledge development

    1/1/09 - Cheadle, Jacob E.

    Drawing on longitudinal data from the Early Childhood Longitudinal Study, Kindergarten Class of 1998–1999, this study used IRT modeling to operationalize a parental educational investment measure based upon Lareau’s notion of ‘concerted cultivation.’ The analysis used multilevel piecewise growth models regressing children’s general knowledge achievement from kindergarten through the first grade on a measure of concerted cultivation and indicators of the...

  • Parent Involvement, Cultural Capital, and the Achievement Gap Among Elementary School Children

    1/1/06 - Lee, Jung-Sook, Bowen, Natasha K.

    This study examined the level and impact of five types of parent involvement on elementary school children's academic achievement by race/ethnicity, poverty, and parent educational attainment. The sample comprised 415 third through fifth graders who completed the Elementary School Success Profile. Hypotheses from Bourdieu's theory of cultural capital were assessed with tests, chi-square statistics, and hierarchical regressions. Consistent with the theory, parents with different demographic...
