Using Texting to Help Families Build Their Children ’s Vocabulary at Home

AbstractTexting is increasingly used by teachers to communicate with families about classroom logistics and to support learning at home. The authors review the research evidence supporting texting as a tool for increasing family members ’ engagement and their children’s learning, including the authors’ own evidence‐based texting program, Text to Talk, which targets students’ vocabulary development. Finally, the authors offer guidelines to teachers regarding effective texting practices to maximize student learning and fami ly engagement. These guidelines might prove useful to teachers beginning to use texting to facilitate students’ word learning specifically and teachers trying to bridge the home–school gap with other content more generally. The authors’ goal is to share these factors with teachers to help supp ort successful home–school connections.

CONCLUSION: Pregnancy outcomes after hysteroscopic placement of a microinsert for hydrosalpinx management before embryo transfer were comparable to those following laparoscopic proximal tubal occlusion or salpingectomy. However, caution is advised regarding microinsert placement for hydrosalpinges before proceeding with assisted reproductive technology. PMID: 32224160 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Most randomized clinical trials (RCTs) assessing the effects of initial anti-infective periodontal therapies use surrogate outcomes as primary outcome variables, such as mean changes in probing depth (PD) or in clinical attachment. However, these parameters do not reflect...

CONCLUSION: Within the limits of our study, the results of this trial indicate that reconstructive periodontal surgery with PTG offers minimal radiographic defect resolution with no significant improvements in clinical endpoints compared to open flap debridement.

CONCLUSION: P. gingivalis and F. nucleatum inoculation induced significant changes in intestinal inflammation and caecal microbiome. Oral gavage with LGG exerted a protective effect against intestinal inflammation and limited gut microbiome changes associated with P. gingivalis and F. nucleatum.

CONCLUSIONS: Non-surgical periodontal therapy was effective during the first 18 months, but periodontal conditions were worse at 48 months after therapy. The distal sites of abutment teeth with direct retainers presented the worst periodontal conditions. PMID: 32224546 [PubMed - in process]

CONCLUSION: Individuals with DD undergoing PMT presented higher rates of recurrence of periodontitis and tooth loss when compared to individuals without DD. Additionally, the interaction between DD and smoking significantly increased the risk for the recurrence of periodontitis. PMID: 32224545 [PubMed - in process]
