How Can Teachers Locate and Translate Research Specific to Instructional Practice?
Research literature provides a wealth of information on a variety of topics in education. You can often find best practices for teaching topics, common misconceptions, learning progressions, assessments, lessons, and case studies. Each of these may provide information that are useful for classroom teachers. One of the challenges is finding the articles for free, and another challenge is translating the literature to the classroom.
