This research synopsis shows that collective efficacy had the strongest independent effect on achievement than any other variable in the study.

ALERT: Make Room for Supporting Understanding of Graphic Text

Although graphic texts, such as infographics, may at first appear relatively accessible, effective readers need support to understand the way visual and print language works to convey meaning. This new ALERT helps teachers support adolescent readers to derive meaning, both explicit and implicit, from the graphic texts they encounter.
