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.

Think and pair before share: Effects of collaboration on students’ in-class participation is a new study. I’m adding it to The Best Sites For Cooperative Learning Ideas.
The magic of models in teacher professional development is from Improving Teaching. I’m adding it to The Best Resources On Professional Development For Teachers — Help Me Find More.
I’m adding this tweet to The Best Resources For Understanding How To Interpret Education Research:
Yes. In fact I would argue that practices that are prescriptive about how teachers should teach cannot be evidenced based because in education the evidence is never clear and unambiguous enough to support prescription about how to teach.
