Topic: Educational Research

10-second review: Suggests a study of how research can be translated into classroom practice.

Title: “Growing Research Practices: Expanding Our Communities and Our Conversations.” Beth Maloch. Research in the Teaching of English (February 2009), 312-315. A publication of the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE).

Summary/Quote: “…I want to spend more time in conversations with teachers, exploring together how research translates into classroom practices. What gets in the way? What are the barriers? What facilitates?” p. 315.

Comment: Translating research into classroom practice begins with reflection on the research findings and conclusions. I also think that translating those findings and conclusions into the classroom will mean modification, in order to make them work in the teacher’s particular classroom. RayS.
