The US Department of Education s What Works Clearinghouse (WWC) education research initiative states that the most important goal for literacy instruction is to increase student s ability to comprehend difficult text. It provides the teacher with a clear focus and understanding of the areas the student may be having trouble in.

The Commonwealth Online Learning Institute s strategy for vocabulary literacy is built on three pillars based on the WWC goal Teach to Learn, Teach to Understand, and Learning & Understanding Content. These three strategies are designed to optimize the learning and engagement process between teachers and students with a view to improving reading ability, problem-solving skills, and strengthening decision-making.

The Boston vocabulary literacy online institute emphasizes the need to help new independent readers by choosing favorite books as an approach to vocabulary development. The institute also recommends that educators tap into cultural backgrounds to help children identify different words for a specific object, progress to understanding content, and teach methods of literary self-expression.

The institute offers facilitated courses such as Building Vocabulary With State Standards and self-paced SP Academic And Domain Specific Vocabulary . These courses are aimed to train and empower educators to help their students develop reading comprehension and communication skills and encourage word-learning and usage strategies.

According to a spokesperson for the Boston online education resource center, We look forward to helping teachers increase their students engagement in the learning process and are happy to recommend these strategies through our courses.

The Commonwealth Online Learning Institute is supported by the Stratford Foundation, an educational resource nonprofit that funds and operates the Commonwealth Learning Center and the Professional Training Institute. The Commonwealth Learning Online Institute is designed as an online learning resource for teachers of schoolchildren.

Anti-groping smartphone app highly popular in Japan

May 23, 2019

TOKYO — A smartphone app developed by Japanese police is being widely downloaded by women trying to protect themselves from gropers on packed rush-hour trains. The "Digi Police" app was originally issued by Tokyo police three years ago, but a function to scare off molesters was only added a few months ago. Since then, the app has reportedly been downloaded hundreds of thousands of times — unusual for a government-developed mobile application. Women in crowded trains and other public places in Japan often face sexual harassment, but are typically too afraid to call out for help. With the app, victims...

Nonprofits turn to cryptocurrency to help needy Venezuelans

May 23, 2019

BARQUISIMETO, Venezuela — Andreina Cordero started the year skipping meals so her three kids could eat. Her husband, a construction worker, was out of a job. And the family's savings had been devastated by the nation's hyperinflation, limiting Cordero's children to a diet of rice, beans, pasta and fried corn patties. But the family got a break from their daily struggle to feed themselves this spring when a social worker enrolled them in a program run by a Silicon Valley startup that is donating cryptocurrency to hundreds of Venezuelan families. Every week from February to April, Cordero received a deposit...

In total, it said there were "fewer than 100" emails linked to four personal accounts. Most of the emails were from the first six months of 2017, soon after DeVos took office, and most were from...

Meet the T. rex cousin who you could literally look down on

May 23, 2019

WASHINGTON — History's most frightening dinosaur, the Tyrannosaurus rex, came from a long line of pipsqueaks. Scientists have identified a new cousin of the T. rex as a dinosaur that only reached the 3-foot height of a toddler. If it stretched its duck-billed head, an adult human maybe "would be looking at it in the eye," said Sterling Nesbitt, a paleontologist at Virginia Tech, who discovered the dinosaur. Nesbitt found a set of its bones in 1998 when he was 16, while serving as a volunteer on a dig in New Mexico with a famed paleontologist. But for about two...

May 23, 2019

CAIRO — Egypt's Antiquities Ministry says archaeologists have uncovered part of an ancient cemetery near the country's famed pyramids on the Giza plateau just outside Cairo. Mostafa Waziri, secretary general of the Supreme Council of Antiquities, says Saturday the cemetery houses burial shafts and tombs of top officials and a fine limestone statue from the Old Kingdom's Fifth Dynasty (2465-2323 B.C.).
