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):
Whole-body learning can boost children’s letter sound recognition — the first step toward reading is from Science Daily. I’m adding it to The Best Resources On Students Using Gestures & Physical Movement To Help With Learning.

I previously posted about an important new study at STUDY FINDS THAT “HANDS-ON” MATH & PROACTIVE “ROUTINES & PROCEDURES” INCREASE TEST SCORES AND STUDENT ENGAGEMENT. The Hechinger Report has also written a review of it at PROOF POINTS: The paradox of “good” teaching
I’m adding this next tweet to The Best Resources On Which Is Best – Reading Digitally Or Reading Paper?:
Even among students of similar socioeconomic backgrounds, those who read books in a paper format scored a whopping 49 points higher on the Program for International Student Assessment, known as PISA. @jillbarshay @hechingerreport https://t.co/fgJ2prOb5b
