Evidence-based back-to-school teaching tips

Now that the schools are back, the What Works Clearinghouse (WWC) has compiled quick tips from their practice guides to help educators put research findings into action. Topics include:

  • How do I help pupils with mathematical problem solving? (Quick tip: Teach kids to use visuals such as number lines and graphs)
  • How do I decrease problem behaviour? (Quick tip: Rearrange the classroom and reinforce expectations)

Each tip links to a topic-related practice guide, where other recommendations and resources can be found. For each recommendation, the WWC summarises and rates the supporting evidence of effectiveness.
