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 2019 – PART ONE and MY BEST POSTS ON NEW RESEARCH STUDIES IN 2019 – PART TWO.

You can see all my “Best” lists related to education research here.

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

About a year ago I shared a post about one of the best articles on classroom management that I had seen (see This Article Is One Of The Best Pieces I’ve Read On Classroom Management). It discussed a paper talking about a technique called “Establish-Maintain-Restore.” I just learned that the paper itself recently was published.  I’m adding it to Best Posts On Classroom Management,

The Case for Reading Fiction is from The Harvard Business Review.  I’m adding it to  Best Posts On Books: Why They’re Important & How To Help Students Select, Read, Write & Discuss Them.

How Large-Print Books Improve Students’ Reading Confidence is from ASCD.

Teachers Are People Too: Examining the Racial Bias of Teachers Compared to Other American Adults is from AERA. I’m adding it to New & Revised: Resources To Help Us Predominantly White Teachers To Reflect On How Race Influences Our Work.

These Two Revision Strategies Can Prepare You For An Exam Much Better Than Just Restudying Your Notes is from Research Digest. I found it particularly interesting because one of the techniques is having students create test questions themselves for an upcoming exam, which is what I often have students do in class. I then choose many of them to actually include on the test itself.  I’m adding it to The Best Resources On Student Self-Assessment.

The Big Problem with Little Interruptions to Classroom Learning is a new study. You might also be interested in my previous post, HOW P.A. ANNOUNCEMENTS AFFECT STUDENT LEARNING.
