I often write about research studies from various fields 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.

This week, though, is a “special edition.” Instead of highlighting a number of individual studies, I’m listing three recent collections of research that are particularly worthwhile.

By the way, you might also be interested in My Best Posts On New Research Studies In 2013.
