Applying educational research : how to read, do, and use research to solve problems of practice by Meredith D Gall( Book )

6 editions published between 2010 and 2015 in English and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Applying Educational Research focuses on relating research to practice, helping educators see the relevance of research to their daily work. This goal of making research relevant is accomplished by focusing on current "problems of practice." Each chapter highlights a set of important issues for teachers, students, and schools - issues like teacher evaluation, the effectiveness of close-reading strategies, and the use of computer-supported instruction. The research examples and articles in the chapter then address these issues, providing students a meaningful context for the information they are learning about research methods. Through this approach, students learn about the research process and current research on topics that directly impact practice. -- from back cover

Organization, a language concept related to effective teaching, student guide by Logan. Utah Protocol Materials Project Utah State Univ.( Book )

3 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This student guide is part of a protocol learning module designed to teach the concept and use of clarity in classroom verbal interactions. The entire module consists of this guide, a protocol film, and testing materials. The student guide contains (a) instruction in the use of protocol modules; (b) a discussion of clarity and the techniques used to obtain clarity in classroom interactions; (c) lessons in the recognition and application of the concept of clarity in classroom situations; and (d) suggestions for incorporating teaching techniques related to clarity in the student's teaching repertoire. The principle underlying clarity is that teacher use of clear and precise language tends to make the material more understandable and increases student achievement. Three teaching techniques related to clarity are described: (a) defining new words - the teacher introduces new terms by defining them or eliciting student definitions and seeking feedback to determine if students have a clear understanding of the new term; (b) precise language - the teacher utilizes precise and definite language in directions, descriptions, and illustrations; and (c) asking single questions - the teacher calls for an answer to only one question at a time rather than asking two or more questions before seeking a student response.
