I write many posts about recent research studies and how they can relate practically to the classroom. In fact, I post a regular feature called Research Studies of the Week. In addition, I write individual posts about studies I feel are particularly relevant to my work as a teacher. You’ll find many of those posts in previous mid-year “The Best…” lists I’ve already published over the past month.
However, there are some research studies that I think are especially relevant to education, but when I wrote about them I didn’t discuss how I applied it to the classroom immediately. If I did use what I learned from the study quickly after I read about it, I wrote about it and you’ll find those posts in either my “The Best…” lists on posts where I reflected on my teaching or posts that are most practical for teachers. This list, which, like many others I’ve published this month, is just a mid-year round-up which I won’t finalize until December, includes posts about studies where I only spoke about how I would apply them in the future, or where I criticized them.
I hope that makes sense and, if it doesn’t, sorry. Either way, I think you’ll find the posts interesting.
