I often write about research studies from various field and how they can be applied to the classroom. I write individual posts about ones that I think are especially significant, and will continue to do so. However, so many studies are published that it’s hard to keep up. So I’ve started writing a “round-up” of some of them each week or every other week as a regular feature:

Teachers’ gestures boost math learning is from Eureka Alert. I’m adding it to The Best Resources On Students Using Gestures & Physical Movement To Help With Learning.

Changing Teens’ Mindsets on Social Aggression is a useful Ed Week article. I’m adding it to The Best Resources On Helping Our Students Develop A “Growth Mindset.”

Here are five new studies related to sleep that I’m adding to The Best Resources For Helping Teens Learn About The Importance Of Sleep:
