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.

By the way, you might also be interested in My Best Posts On New Research Studies In 2016 – So Far.

Here are some new useful studies (and related resources):

THE FUTURE OF EGO DEPLETION RESEARCH is a transcript of an important debate on the theory that self-control is a limited resource. I’ve written a lot about that perspective and how I apply it in the classroom, and you can find all those posts, as well as posts on this debate and its importance, at The Best Posts About Helping Students Develop Their Capacity For Self-Control.

Paying do-gooders makes them less persuasive is the headline of an article about yet another study finding that extrinsic motivation doesn’t work. I’m adding it to The Best Posts & Articles On “Motivating” Students.

How incivility spreads in the workplace is the headline of a Science Daily report on a new study. I’m adding it to The Best Ways To Deal With Rudeness In Class.

High School Kids Aren’t Sleeping, and Have Accidents As a Result is from NBC News. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Helping Teens Learn About The Importance Of Sleep.

Early bedtime, better school performance is from Science Daily. I’m adding it to the same list.

Study Finds Social Media Leads To Sleep Disturbance is from TechCrunch. This link is going on the same list.

John Hattie’s Research Doesn’t Have to Be Complicated is by Peter DeWitt. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Understanding How To Interpret Education Research.
