I often write about research studies from various fields and how they can be applied to the classroom.

How Does Summer Learning Really Affect Students’ Academic Achievement? is from Ed Week.
Rethinking summer slide: The more you gain, the more you lose is from Kappan Online.
Is Summer Learning Loss Real? is from Education Next.
The Teenage Personality Traits Linked To Long Life is from Psyc Blog.
