It’s that time of year again – one that I look forward to and dread at that same time.
It’s time for my end-of-year “Best” lists!
You can see all my mid-year lists at All My 2015 Mid-Year “Best” Lists In One Place! and all my 1,500 “Best” lists here.
My first end-of-year list is on research studies that have come out over the past six months.
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.
