Links Between Students’ Perceptions of Their Teachers and Math Scores

      In this intriguing Elementary School Journal article, Haytske Zijlstra and Helma Koomen (University of Amsterdam) and Theo Wubbels and Mieke Brekelmans (Utrecht University) report on their study of teachers’ interpersonal behavior and their students’ mathematics achievement.

Superheroes Help Students Read with Fluency



In this charming article in The Reading Teacher, Illinois elementary teachers Barclay Marcell and Christine Ferraro describe a second-grade girl who “reads 100 words per minute with a flat voice and a mind that’s focused on what’s for lunch,” a boy who reads 120 words a minute and cares more about his reading-rate graph than the content of the story, and students who ask, “Are you timing me?” and “Did I beat my last score?” Most… Continue
