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):
Coming home to teach: Do local grads make better teachers? is from the National Council on Teacher Quality.
1/6 The cost of attending “high-achieving” schls: A research review shows that the “unrelenting pressures [in these schls] to accomplish ever more” & be the best –> anxiety & depression at a rate an astounding 6-7 times higher than average for that age: https://t.co/YU9mFrWnwA

When experienced teachers try to change, they must devote extra mental effort to execute the new practice AND suppress any old habits they are trying to replace.
This can make teaching feel clumsy, and remove that precious bandwidth reserved for monitoring and responding. pic.twitter.com/S6KoG6FO1L

ADHD: Medication alone doesn’t improve classroom learning for children – new research is from The Conversation. I’m adding it to THE BEST RESOURCES FOR LEARNING ABOUT ADHD.
I’m adding this next tweet to The Best Sites For Cooperative Learning Ideas:
Huge project, years in the making by my @CESRUSC colleagues finds substantial positive impacts of project-based learning on AP exam scores in both government and environmental science. Impressive work! https://t.co/LuuYBtGDHl

Teacher noticing: A systematic literature review of conceptualizations, research designs, and findings on learning to notice is a new study. I hadn’t heard of “teacher noticing” as a concept to be studied, but it basically means observing things in the classroom and acting on them. I’m adding it to The Best Research On How Many Decisions A Teacher Makes Each Day.
