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 2021 – PART TWO.

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

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

Motivational Strategies in the Secondary School EFL Classroom: The Case of Ecuador looks interesting. I’m adding it to  Best Posts On “Motivating” Students.

EdArXiv: A Preprint Server For The Education Research Community looks like a gold mine for education research studies.

Think and pair before share: Effects of collaboration on students’ in-class participation is a newer study that will reinforce what most teachers have seen in the classroom.

K-12 Education:Students’ Experiences with Bullying, Hate Speech, Hate Crimes, and Victimization in Schools is depressing.

Learning From Failures: Lessons From Unsuccessful Grading Reform Initiatives is by Thomas Guskey. I’m adding it to The Best Resources On Grading Practices.

Students who repeat a grade experience more bullying, study finds is from Science Daily. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Learning About Grade Retention, Social Promotion & Alternatives To Both.

Children harmed by school streaming into lower ability groups, UK study shows is from The Guardian. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Learning About Ability Grouping & Tracking — Help Me Find More.
