I’ve written before about the excellent free bi-weekly email newsletter from Middle Web called “Of Particular Interest.” You can subscribe to it by sending a note to norton@middleweb.com with SUBSCRIBE in the subject line.

That was a preface to an interesting piece in the most recent edition.  Quoting John Norton, Middleweb’s editor: “A recent “practice guide” from the federal National Center for Education Research distills what its panel of scholarly authors believe are seven of the best research-based instructional strategies teachers can use to improve student learning…Don’t be put off by the lengthy scholarly introduction — skim and skip to
page 4.”

I followed John’s advice and thought that page was interesting.  I’ll be sharing it with colleagues.
