Thursday, February 15, 2018
11:30 AM–1:00 PM

  • PMD: 3
  • Grade Level(s): B
  • Skill Level: Introduction
  • Session 5: Promoting Academic Success

Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. determine underlying factors (e.g., behavior) that can impair a student's writing.
  2. explain reasons why writing interventions might not have demonstrated effective results for their student(s).
  3. assess other interventions to target specific behaviors related to written expression.


Is it possible that writing interventions fail to demonstrate positive results because we are targeting the wrong behaviors? This study advances the current literature to examine third-grade students' classroom behaviors and attention as predictors of writing performance within the context of a performance feedback intervention. This poster will encourage practitioners to think critically about underlying factors that may affect a student’s writing performance.
