Eric.ed.gov – Engagement and Perception’s Influence on Achievement

eric.ed.gov har udgivet:

Can increasing student perception and engagement though alternative teaching methods, such as introducing math in an everyday context improve student test scores? Literature on this subject suggests improving student engagement and introduction of math in everyday applications can improve student comprehension. This study looks at a second grade classroom in rural Michigan. Nine different data sources were utilized including a pre and post study parent survey, a daily classroom observational chart, conference interviews, comparison of pre and post-test of lessons taught traditionally and using everyday math, a teacher journal of observations made during lessons, an evaluation of student report cards, and comparisons of state standardized test and district objective scores. The study found student improvement regardless of lesson delivery, and improved engagement with introduction of everyday math. As a result of this study, introduction of more everyday math in the second grade classroom can lead to better engagement. The following are appended: (1) Data Collection Plan; (2) Student/Parent Survey/Questionnaire; (3) Data Source Two Summary; (4) Traditional Instruction Pre and Post Test Results; (5) Everyday Math Instruction Pre and Post Test; (6) Historical MEAP (Michigan Educational Assessment Program) – 3rd Grade Math-Pathfinder Elementary School Percentage of Students Who Are Proficient; and (7) District Outcomes MAP test 2011/12.

Jeg har tidligere været ansat som pædagogisk konsulent i matematik og tysk hos UCL ved Center for Undervisningsmidler (CFU) i Vejle og lærer i udskolingen (7.-9. klasse) på Lyshøjskolen i Kolding. Jeg er ejer af og driver bl.a. hjemmesiderne www.lærklokken.dk og www.iundervisning.dk, ggbkursus.dk og er tidligere fagredaktør på matematik på emu.dk. Jeg går ind for, at læring skal være let tilgængelig og i størst mulig omfang gratis at benytte.
