Promoting Student Agency in Writing

AbstractWith increasing expectations on students regarding written communication, the promotion of student agency in writing is more important now than ever. Teachers must find ways to engage and empower all learners throughout the writing process so they can produce authentic and meaningful writing independently. To promote such agency, educators must allow students to do more of the work, even while scaffolding for students who need more support. Supporting students in ways that promote metacognition, using their own voice and ideas, pinpointing their individual needs, and encouraging student leadership throughout the writing process kindle students ’ capacity and inclination to take initiative for their own achievement. The author presents strategies that teachers can use to promote student metacognition and agency during the writing processes while allowing students to keep their own writing identity and build independence.

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]
