J. Richard Gentry, Ph.D., and author of many books based on spelling research, was
asked by the Zaner-Bloser editor Marytherese Croakin to discuss the four most pressing
questions teachers have asked about teaching spelling. Here are the...
When the words become mastered the words are crossed out, if the word is missed again, they
circle it and try again during a future lesson. The spelling journal is a place to store words for
future spelling lessons (Gentry, 2004).
According to Bear, et al. (2004), this word study program “evolves from three decades of
research in developmental aspects of word knowledge with children and adults” (p. 5). This
research has shown specific patterns of errors that children...
For the next six weeks the Words Their Way spelling program was used to teach spelling.
This consisted of specific groups of students at each level of spelling development, ranging from
students in the within-word patterns to...
Chapter 4 – Results
The objective of this study was to use the information gained from researching and
utilizing the program Spelling Connections and instructional methods of Words Their Way, to
find the most productive method of teaching...
Each week students were asked to choose two words from their spelling journal to add to their
post-assessment. If the word was spelled correctly then students were able to cross out the word
in their journal, if still misspelled it was circled...
There was still growth within the groups, but it was minimal compared to the first six
weeks. It is likely that the rate of growth during the second 6-week period would have mirrored
the rate of growth of the first 6-week period, had the...
feature points that can be awarded is 53. Thus, the total number of points given on the spelling
inventory appropriate for 4th graders is 78. The students overall raw score on each benchmark
was then averaged with other students in their group...
Chapter 5 – Implications for the Future
It is certain that spelling is important and needs to be part of instruction in the classroom.
Spelling is something that needs to be taught on a daily basis and connections in spelling must...
teachers the data that was collected from using the Spelling Connections program, I would hope
to convince them of the importance of taking the time to teach spelling. Tier 2 and Tier 3
students in the study, made huge gains and most are now...
purposes. First, it was used to provide motivation for couples to participate. The incentive was
substantial enough to draw attention to the study during recruiting purposes. Second, the
incentive was provided so that couples could...
students would only cover computer forensics and network forensics although mobile
forensics and multimedia forensics are still in practice.
1.3 Purpose of the Study
The purpose of this study is:
• To provide a model for baccalaureate and...
technical electives and open university electives [Wes07]. Additionally, they suggested
that each of the technical subjects must be accompanied 1 hour lab hours. The purpose of
this lab course is to maintain hands-on experience among students...
2.4 Admission Requirements to Digital Forensics Program
Basically, most of the papers or research in digital forensics program only
concentrate on the curriculum and seldom touch about the requirements of a student prior
to program acceptance...
2.6 Digital forensics Laboratory
Digital forensics laboratory plays a big role in the development of digital
forensics training in current higher education. Practical training will assist digital
forensics students to understand in depth about...
Meanwhile, the attack network will simulate attacks to the target network. It will create
“live” network forensics situation. The control network will provide automated
management for the system administrator (usually a trainer or a...
addition, [Wes07] really emphasized the needs of collaboration with digital forensics
In the Champlain College case, the college and digital forensics practitioner,
which is Burlington Police Department, work together to create a...
usually it is accomplished by doing research on any topic that touches about digital
forensics [URI(b), CER].
The requirements of those programs mentioned above actually depend on the
level of the program itself. For instance, if a future...
digital forensics program it is. However, due to the rapid development of learning tools
available on the market nowadays, student or digital forensics practitioners would be able
to learn from other sources, such as from the internet or...
Introduction to digital forensics investigation is a subject that applies all the
subjects that have been learned by students during the completion of this program. It will
use the same technique and pedagogy applied in the “Business Game”...
