Full-text available
Early intervention for children with reading impairments is crucial in order to achieve reading improvements and avoid school failure. One line of reading intervention research focuses on the experimental manipulation of reading rate through a text-fading training approach. Considering relevant reading-related predictors (i.e., orthographic knowled...
Article
Full-text available
Background Although breaks are essential to restoring cognitive and psychological conditions for learning, short breaks within school lessons are not established and the specificity of effects has not often been investigated. Therefore, the effects of a physical activity (Study 1) and a mindfulness intervention (Study 2) were investigated. Procedu...

Full-text available
Humans process quantity information without the aid of language or symbols to guide a variety of everyday life decisions. The cognitive system that supports this intuitive skill is often referred to as the approximate number system (ANS). It has been argued that the ANS serves as the foundation of the formal symbolic number system—mathematics. Abun...

Full-text available
Living at the beginning of the 21st century requires being numerate, because numerical abilities are not only essential for life prospects of individuals but also for economic interests of post-industrial knowledge societies. Thus, numerical development is at the core of both individual as well as societal interests. There is the notion that we are...
Article
Full-text available
Human beings are assumed to possess an approximate number system (ANS) dedicated to extracting and representing approximate numerical magnitude information. The ANS is assumed to be fundamental to arithmetic learning and has been shown to be associated with arithmetic performance. It is, however, still a matter of debate whether better arithmetic s...

Full-text available
Symbolic numerical magnitude processing skills are assumed to be fundamental to arithmetic learning. It is, however, still an open question whether better arithmetic skills are reflected in symbolic numerical magnitude processing skills. To address this issue, Chinese and German third graders were compared regarding their performance in arithmetic...

Chapter
Breznitz (J Educ Psychol 89:289–297, 1987a; Fluency in reading: synchronization of processes. Erlbaum, Mahwah, 2006) demonstrated that a fading manipulation, which continuously erases text based on the individual reading rate, results in improved reading performance. Several studies using this fading procedure showed that children as well as adults...

Im Bereich der computergestützten Leseförderung wurde in den letzten Jahren erfolgreich Interventionsprogramme eingesetzt, in denen individuelle Lesezeiten direkt manipuliert wurden. Grundlage dieser Programme ist das sogenannte Beschleunigungsphänomen, dass einen messbaren Anstieg des Leseverständnisses umschreibt, der durch eine künstliche Steige...
Article
Full-text available
The Acceleration Phenomenon (AP) has been demonstrated by studies showing that reading rate and comprehension improvements can be induced by a fading procedure, erasing text based on the previously measured individual’s fast- est reading rate. However, whether or not reading enhancements can also be ob- served through slow fading rates has not been...
Article
Full-text available
Previous studies used a text-fading procedure as a training tool with the goal to increase silent reading fluency (i.e., reading rate and comprehension). In recently published studies, this procedure resulted in lasting reading enhancements for adult and adolescent research samples. However, studies working with children reported mixed results. Whi...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
To assess possible structural changes in cortical anatomy that occur in the course of literacy acquisition, children were investigated twice in their first two years of elementary school. Tensor-based morphometry revealed a negative association between longitudinal cortical volume development and reading proficiency in areas previously associated w...
Article
Full-text available
Neural systems involved in the processing of written language have been identified by a number of functional imaging studies. Structural changes in cortical anatomy that occur in the course of literacy acquisition, however, remain largely unknown. Here, we follow elementary school children over their first 2 years of formal reading instruction and...
Article
The internal/external frame of reference model (I/E-model) postulates that students' self-concepts are formed by social as well as dimensional comparison processes. In the present study the I/E-model was tested and extended by data from a sample of 1631 third grade el- ementary school children. Core academic skills of reading and math as well as sp...
Article
Full-text available
The approximate number system (ANS) is assumingly related to mathematical learning but evidence supporting this assumption is mixed. The inconsistent findings might be attributed to the fact that different measures have been used to assess the ANS and mathematical skills. Moreover, associations between the performance on a measure of the ANS and ma...
Article
Full-text available
Gender differences in mathematical achievement have been examined in a wide range of age groups but only a few studies addressed this issue in preschool children. We compared preschool girls (n = 570) and boys (n = 524) from Germany with regard to numerical competencies. Differences in overall group means and the frequency of representation at low,...
Article
Full-text available
Different lines of evidence suggest that children's mental representations of numbers are spatially organized in form of a mental number line. It is, however, still unclear whether a spatial organization is specific for the numerical domain or also applies to other ordinal sequences in children. In the present study, children (n = 129) aged 8-9 yea...
Article
Full-text available
In the course of elementary school children start to develop an academic self-concept reflecting their motivation, thoughts, and feelings about a specific domain. For the domain of mathematics, gender differences can emerge which are characterized by a less pronounced math self-concept for girls. However, studies are rather sparse regarding the ear...

Full-text available
The internal/external (I/E) frame of reference model (Marsh, Am Educ Res J 23:129–149, 1986) conceptualizes students' self-concepts as being formed by dimensional as well as social comparison processes. In the present study, the I/E model was tested and extended in a sample of elementary school children. Core academic skills of reading, writing, an...

This study examines students’ use of self-regulated motor learning strategies related to a congruent or incongruent teacher-student fit-constellation of perceived and preferred teaching behavior. In a cross-sectional study in German grammar schools, 1452 students and 18 physical education teachers participated. The results of the study indicate tha...
Article
The acceleration phenomenon (AP) is defined by improvements in reading speed and reading comprehension, induced by an artificial text fading procedure corresponding to the previously determined fastest individual reading rate. Recent results, however, indicated that fading that is slower than the self-paced reading rate can produce comparable readi...

The purpose of this study was to adapt the Leadership Scale for Sports (LSS; Chelladurai & Saleh, 1980) to physical education (PE) classes, for measuring teacher behavior by taking consideration of the perspectives of students and teachers. We moreover examined the influence of teacher behavior and the perceived teacher-student congruence on the sa...
Article
Full-text available
As demonstrated by the Overlapping Waves Model (Siegler, 1996), children’s strategy use in arithmetic tasks is variable, adaptive, and changes gradually with age and experience. In this study, first grade elementary school children (n = 73), who scored high, middle, or low in a standardized scholastic mathematic achievement test, were confronted wi...
