As I've been researching how to improve literacy skills in middle school students, I've found a lot of fascinating work being done, including this case study of morphological skills' role in literacy development. In my view, this study is another confirmation that there are proven methods of promoting writing skills that don't rely on rote memorization or endless drilling - it's all about producing MEANING for students! What other approaches are you aware of to help students better develop their literacy skills?

All that is about emergent literacy, and its practices on shared reading, vocabulary growth, phonological awareness, letter knowledge, and affectives support. On writing genre there is also a very interesting work by Liliana Tolchinsky.
With more grown up chidren and youngsters: writing process by Marlene Scardamalia, writing across curriculum by Cherles Bazerman, and in university and college, academic literacy by Paula Carlino.
I think all of them are linked to the work of language in education (Douglas Barnes) and in language through interaction (Gordon Wells) in UK universities in the 1970s and 1980s.

in Pakistan there is low literacy rate. number of schools are minimal and education level is below the belt. govt. institutes try their best to provide feasible education but cant. so what are other ways we can use to end up illiteracy and every child in those areas can get modern education.
Relevant answer
Answer
Dear Haseeb,
Again, in no way do I disagree - education is a good thing, from my point of view. Corruption and teachers who don't believe in teaching, who don't see their success in the children they are supposed to serve, are hard to root out. These problems exist around the world, and no one thing has prevented them. However, selection matters - choosing teachers carefully. Holding them to account - having a mechanism to remove teachers who are not competent. And reinforcing and working with those teachers who are doing their work. I would say you need all three mechanisms, and the community cannot probably count on the government at all for the last two.
Take care

Answer
Hello Kirti,
Of course, the model(s) of interest should be driven by your specific research question(s).
It sounds to me as if you could:
1. Evaluate two different models: (a) one with FinLit as a mediator, with some other variable as the target DV (and at least one IV beyond these vars); (b) one with FinLit as a DV;
The only problem with this approach is that you don't have a simultaneous test of whatever the mediation RQ is, coupled with whatever the FinLit = DV RQ might be.
2. Combine the models, so that, FinLit is in fact a target DV for one or more other variables, and it behaves as a mediator in that relationship.
The only problem with the second approach is you'd have to respecify it in at least two other ways to evaluate the mediation hypothesis vs. whatever the hypothesis of interest is when FinLit is the DV.
You'll have to decide which approach makes the most sense given your research aims.
Good luck with your work.

I'm simply trying to state that the British vernacular uses "extortion", a serious crime, to describe food or drink they feel to be expensive.
It seems that unless someone else has done a literacy analysis on the term you know to be common place it is next to impossible to evidence.
Example: "Meal was great, but the prices are extortionate."
Thanks in advance.

Answer
Attempting to obtain money or other valuables by means of a threat is extortion. Extortion occurs when someone attempts to obtain money or property by threatening to commit violence, accuse the victim of a crime, or reveal private or damaging information about the victim.

So the question remains: Why are we just now calling out learning gaps for our children when they’ve been experiencing significant literacy failure for nearly 30 years?
Relevant answer
Answer
The first IQ test was developed in the early 1900's because the French Ministry of Education recognized that some children were not as prepared as others for learning basic reading and math skills (they realized there was a gap between some students entering public education and others). Many people mistakenly believe that the IQ test measures overall intelligence, when in fact it measures one's preparedness for being able to process academic tasks, which is why it correlates strongly with educational attainment. It is also probably the assessment that has been most thoroughly analyzed statistically, historically.
But it is predictive rather than an assessment of prior achievement. It also does no specifically measure literacy. My point in mentioning the IQ test was that gaps in education have been recognized for more than a century.
In terms of literacy, specifically, I don't think there has been more literacy failure over the last 30 years than at other times in the nation's history. During the end of the 20th century there was a decades-long controversy regarding whether a phonics or whole-language approach would be the more effective intervention. I think the current view is that both are essential, though each is most beneficial at different points in a child's development. My conclusion, based on the most current information, is that the gaps we see after the 4th grade slump are largely the result of differences in background knowledge and that reading interventions over the past 30 years have not been designed for nor done a good job of addressing that aspect.
Daniel Willingham, a cognitive scientist from the University of Virginia, has written some useful papers on the subject. I've attached some resources that I have my undergraduates read in some of the reading courses I teach that may be helpful.

Introducing the language functions in the ESL classroom will indeed equip learners with the essential skills to fulfil their academic demands. Still, they are often incapable of expressing deep emotions in everyday life using the target language because the language used in ELT coursebooks is refined, and the contexts they present is often ideal. Besides, the language used is often mechanical and devoid of stance. In contrast, the language used in literary works is genuine, and it exposes people’s lives without any mask. Therefore, exploiting literacy pieces in the English classroom will allow students to engage in meaningful interaction with the authentic materials to deconstruct the text, re-construct language and use it in real-life situations.
Relevant answer
Answer
I agree with Mr Hassan, and I would like to add that literature work is considered a language resource for English and most languages. Poems, even legends believe to be a linguistic resource. So, any SL teacher or student needs to return to the literature to enrich his linguistic backgrounds, such as vocabulary and grammar. It is the perfect writing, reading, or even daily conversation model.

Reasons for low level of market participation and portfolio diversification
Relevant answer
Answer
Dear Winfrey
Stock market participation is a widely discussed phenomenon in finance-related fields Activities and academic literature, and relatively large differences in the participation rate of stock markets in specific countries have not been explored to a large extent. Although many scholars have elaborated on the relevance of financial knowledge related to stock market participation and the importance of the latter, the participation rate is still quite low. The academic community seems to agree with the fact that an individual’s financial knowledge is It is important in predicting the degree of participation in the stock market. In addition to the generally low stock market participation, the mystery of stock market participation is also related to large cross-country differences. Although the participation rate of the stock market has increased over time, huge differences in the participation rate of countries still exist. To this day, the puzzles involved in the stock market are still relatively incomplete. Although its importance has been proven, scholars still cannot fully and reasonably explain the relatively low stock market participation rate and the difference in stock market participation rates between countries. Traditional research mainly focuses on the personal characteristics of stock market participation. When a country’s social connections decline, financial literacy becomes a more important determinant of stock market participation. This means that it is particularly interesting for policymakers in countries with low social ties to invest in improving their country’s financial knowledge. Compared with similar growth in financial knowledge in countries with very close social connections, this investment will generate a relatively large increase in stock market participation. In addition, increased participation in the stock market will ultimately benefit society.

Dear Joanna Huxster,
thank you for the question!
On the one hand, personally I have never heard about "environmental knowledge literacy" as such, may be it exists (share if you will find any links, would be so curious). On the other hand, there is no doubt, that "environmental competences" (knowledge, attitudes and skills) as a "draft" for environmental knowledge awareness could be in a content of science/environmental education. Also it would be possible to search via key words, such as "sustainable development", "environmental studies" or "circular economy".
I wish you to find and share your investigations!

There is a lot of entrepreneur in this world. Some of them are really successful with becoming a trillionaire but mostly are not. And when we speak with them who success, absolutely they know how money works. Its something beyond financial literacy that we know nowadays.

So if you define financial literacy as it is known nowadays, absolutely it has no relation for people with high success in becoming an entrepreneur. But if you ask people that not mature enough in business, it may be related. The most successful person in business has higher value understanding of money and its more comprehensive than just financial literacy.

Throughout human history there has been almost nothing that has had more influence than money on the overall lives of people, their relationships and their way of life. In today's insecure and turbulent times, however, it is not easy to earn and save enough money for life, just as it is not easy to successfully manage it. Consequently, financial literacy is of great importance to the entire population. The role that financial literacy plays in the quality of people's lives is one of the key factors in achieving the success of every individual and therefore society as a whole. In many ways, the Quality of Life, with all its components, is basically limited by the individual's ability to access the required material and financial resources. The reality is that without an adequate level of finances it is very difficult to enjoy a satisfying Quality of Life. At the same time, without an adequate level of Financial Literacy it is very difficult to ensure this adequate level of finances. The link between them is clear and the consequences of problems in this area lead to problems in all of society. What do you think about this?

according to Starkey (2003), empowerment is discussed with increasing regularity, yet remains a contested concept which is often not clearly defined. An explanation for this could be diverse origins. As a concept, empowerment has its roots in a range of traditions, including among others, the civil rights, anti-racist and women’s movements and consumerism. Thus, empowerment holds varying meanings in a range of contexts with different underpinning assumptions and ideologies. In order to establish a theoretical framework, this paper will outline two competing discourses identified by Croft and Beresford (1995): the consumerist model of empowerment and the liberational model of empowerment.
Empowerment and Information
Information underpins both buyer and supplier power in the marketplace. Keh and Park (1988) suggest that information allows access to more products and allows individuals to learn about manufacturers and distributors, competitive offerings and prices. Pitt et al (2002) note that information incompleteness and information asymmetries do not provide conditions where individuals feel they have all the information to act, in a sense rendering them powerless The power of information is manifest in the relationship between consumers and professionals (such as health care professionals or financial services professionals).

Maybe you could look at the PISA methodology for assessment of scientific literacy. That could be useful if you are going to research skills in scientific literacy. PISA is testing 15-years-old, but methodological frame could serve you for some ideas.

So glad you are working in a school! Your research about morphology and literacy has been an important influence.
While I continue to publish, my main focus is working directly with schools and educators to help them understand English orthography so that they can target that understanding in literacy instruction from the beginning of formal instruction. My 2018 article with my brother, Jeff Bowers (https://tinyurl.com/y9gh6l8e) addresses this issue. Morphology is key, of course, but it's really about the interrelation of morphology, etymology and phonology. The evidence from meta-analyses of morphological instruction is that it brings the greatest benefits to younger and less able students.
However, few have an image of what morphology instruction can look like in early literacy instruction let alone orthographic instruction. I thought you might be interested in
Some practical examples from schools I've been working with. This recent piece shares examples from pre-school to Gr. 2 that may interest you. https://tinyurl.com/y7oan9wz.

Scientific literacy is the most commonly used term, however, still ill defined. Several researchers used different dimensions to explain this concept. What is your idea about scientific literacy.
Relevant answer
Answer
Shairose Jessani, any usefulness of scientific knowledge is not necessary directly acknowledged. Sometimes it takes time to find out its proper use, either as technological improvement or just better understanding of the world. However, belief that knowledge produced by science is always useful is not universal.in modern western societies this belief is (still) in power. A layman can relay on technological innovations, while his understanding of scientific process can be very shallow, as long as he is a true believer. When this magic stop working, the layman can no longer benefit from the scientific findings due to changes in politics that follow. Of course, a teacher need to go deeper than that. some knowledge about scientific process is mandatory.

The literature review shows that, as an educational approach, mathematical modeling can be organized pedagogically through different cycles of modeling in science and mathematics, which will depend on the epistemological and methodological affiliation of the modeler. Our research hypothesis is that, depending on the didactic organization of the modeling cycle, it is possible to develop in students several competences for scientific literacy.

I am a social policy/ social work student with a specific interest in learning disabilities. My son attends a specialist dyslexic school for children with severe dyslexia. The criteria for enrolement is that children must have a regular or higher IQ but be within the 1st to 3rd percentile in their literacy ability. They attend the school for a two year period before returning to mainstream education.
They target children's dyslexia using the Wilson Method to decode language while also working on self esteem and confidence building.The difference the school has made in one year is increadible, my son can now read, is engaged and his sanxiety has disappeared.
The Department of Education now want to keep children in mainstream primary schools and use resource teaching to tackle dyslexiainstead of specialist teaching.
We are trying to gather research to show the benefit of targeted teaching in these very few specialist schools. leaign
Any research on the benefits of dyslexia teaching would be of benefit, thanks

Answer
There are a large number of studies that support the use of explicit instruction that is targeted to particular discrete skills is beneficial in preventing dyslexia for younger students (K-2) and slowing the decline or remediating for older students. I would suggest that you take a look at the work done by Kate Cain, one of the more prolific researchers in the area of dyslexia.

First, look at : https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/NBK402020/. I think that we in the sociology of education tend to see a major difference in attitudes about schooling that really do tend to track with SES. In the U.s., low-income parents were often poorly educated themselves, and this has generally produced two related attitudes: 1) that they are not capable of helping their children learn because 'they don't know what they don't know'; and, 2) because the teacher is 'educated', it is the teachers job (exclusively, not just primarily) to teach the child.
Included in this are cultural connect/disconnect tones, such as the statement that I once heard from a former vet and dad of Appalachian heritage: "The state tells me I have to send my kids to school, so I do..."

Flynn has written of the inter-generational increase in human ability to process abstractions in advanced nations since the 19th century. This increase is sometimes linked to advances in mass literacy. Other processes may have had related effects in different centuries.
The abstract (geometrical) forms of human habitations seem like a plausible proxy for the dispersion of one form of abstraction across large populations.
Relevant answer
Answer
I get your point, Shobhon. Let me try to clarify.
At a certain stage in the transition from living in nature to deep immersion in an urban environment, our cognitive processing of geometric form must become separate from specific cases (such as a rectangular room with right angles) and start engaging in freer generalization. Kelly S. Mix observes that urban American children can apprehend with greater than random accuracy which of two 4-digit numbers is larger as early as the age of 3. Where does this knowledge come from? And would it be replicable in a typical oral village (my bet is that it wouldn't)?

I would love to hear from different countries. In Thailand now the MoE Policy has promoted STEM/STEAM in classroom; however, these concepts are not really innovative since it has been used in many countries. One study said that they analysed scientific texts into 3 units ( words, structures, and nominalisation). I don't agree if this is a way to integrate STEM into English.

As a student and a tutor, i think children are mostly able to learn with games. After talking about the subject, playing a match-up game, tabu, or ludo( i made our own ludo for writer and work matching) will help them to involve in the topic. Also, drama is one of the most effective ones because with the help of this way, children are not only reading or listening the story, but also they are given a chance to participate in the story

In my particular context, the only reason a person would take such an exam is whether the passing performance on the exam would lead to something tangible on a certification or license. There are many and interesting ETS exams that have little import on teaching credentials. I was an initial fan of the test as digital fluency and critical thinking seemed to have some cache in 2011, and was hoping that our tech courses could have this exam as a summative assessment (costs money), however, the states and accrediting bodies just didn't move in that direction in the US.
