Meaning[ edit ] Wood defines problem-based learning as a process that uses identified issues within a scenario to increase knowledge and understanding. It maintains a higher level of motivation towards learning, and shows the importance of responsible, professional attitudes with teamwork values. Problem-based learning has subsequently been adopted by other medical school programs  adapted for undergraduate instruction,    as well as K
One of the most important of these is that raising the level of literacy for children is an act of social justice. John Dewey, one of the founders of Teachers College, wrote: Our work aims to prepare kids for any reading and writing task they will face or set themselves, to turn them into life-long, confident readers and writers who display agency and independence in their future endeavors.
That is, our aims reach beyond state testing and fulfillment of tasks for schools.
We aim to strengthen a generation of readers and writers. To achieve these goals, the Reading and Writing Project supports teachers, administrators, and school change agents with professional development, curriculum, and instructional methods.
The work of the Reading and Writing Project is informed by research in all of these areas as well as the more specialized categories of literacy. Turning children into readers through an emphasis on a high volume of high-success, high- interest reading: TCRWP reading instruction relies on research that shows that kids need to read a lot of texts, with high comprehension, in order to move up levels of text complexity.
TCRWP reading workshops are structured to allow for students to read eyes on print every day for minutes in the reading workshop. Volume is vigilantly watched.
Anderson, Wilson, and Fielding researched the relationship between the amount of reading done and reading achievement. More recently, in her article, Independent Reading and School Achievement, Cullinan reviewed the research on the effects of independent reading for the purpose of informing policy makers, curriculum developers, parents, teachers, and librarians about the importance of independent reading and programs that support it.
The review concludes that independent reading, defined as the reading students choose to do, supports learning and school achievement. Providing students with protected reading time is necessary in order to support their growth in reading. Teachers re-assess often with informal running records in independent reading novels and many schools conduct more formal running records least times a year.
Teachers closely monitor both reading volume and progress up levels. Multiple studies have found specifically that matching readers to texts supports growth in reading. There is little research available, however, to support the idea of readers reading texts which are too challenging for them.
The authors review research on text complexity and learning to read and come away with two major conclusions: The authors conclude by contending that in order for students to become proficient readers, they must read texts which match their independent reading levels.
To progress as readers, readers must have ample time to read a lot and they must have texts they can read independently.
The following are some of the sources we recommend consulting to learn more about the research in this area: What research says about text complexity and learning to read.

49 Abstract: Case-based learning (CBL) is an interactive teaching approach involving small-group discussion to determine a range of solutions for a presented pa-tient case. In light of the success that the approach has achieved in numerous. Teaching Methodology by Mount Guide International in Academic At Mount Guide, we provide education with an objective to empower students to make decisions, to find creative solutions and plan effective action strategies. Curriculum-based reform, which aligns curriculum with content and performance standards, is sweeping education systems. But what makes curriculum-based reform effective? The Mid-continent Regional Educational Laboratory (McREL) is heading a series of studies to survey the implementation of this reform approach and its impact on student achievement.
