Organizing Instruction and Study to Improve Student Learning: What Works Clearinghouse

This guide includes a set of concrete actions relating to the use of instructional and study time that are applicable to subjects that demand a great deal of content learning, including social studies, science, and mathematics.
Dennis P. Garland's insight:

 "A recommendation from one of the earliest WWC practice guides reads: “To help students remember key facts, concepts, and knowledge, we recommend that teachers arrange for students to be exposed to key course concepts on at least two occasions—separated by a period of several weeks to several months.” A recent Time article highlighting new findings from IES-funded research agrees, referring to this as “distributed practice” and finds it has high utility for improving student learning. The practice guide link is below, and the Time article can be found at:http://ideas.time.com/2013/01/09/highlighting-is-a-waste-of-time-the-best-and-worst-learning-techniques/";

The guide was developed with some of the most important principles to emerge from research on learning and memory in mind.  Take time to look at the individual documents within.

Special education teachers need to be evaluated. They hold a very influential position in education. The way they teach is a huge impact on these special education students. By evaluating these teachers it can help benefit the students.
