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 2017 – Part Two.

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

Starting to think about tracking is from Teaching With Problems. It’s not a new study. However, it’s a good summary of the existing research. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Learning About Ability Grouping & Tracking — Help Me Find More.

Learning by teaching others is extremely effective – a new study tested a key reason why is from Research Digest. I’m adding it to The Best Posts On Helping Students Teach Their Classmates — Help Me Find More.

The Myth of ‘Learning Styles’ is from The Atlantic. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Learning About The Issue Of “Learning Styles”

Big surprise, eh? Students Learn Less When They Sense Teacher Hostility is from Ed Week. I’m adding it to The Best Resources On The Importance Of Building Positive Relationships With Students.
