In this issue of the Academic Quarterly, in the Reading Expert section, we summarize a recently published study by the Institute of Education Sciences (IES), An Exploration of Instructional Practices that Foster Language Development and Comprehension: Evidence from Prekindergarten through Grade 3 in Title I Schools. For those of you who are Tim Shanahan fans, he is one of the authors.
In the Marvelous Mathematician, we correlate the practices recommended in Visible Learning for Mathematics with the recommendations in the IES Practice Guide, Organizing Instruction and Study to Improve Student Learning.
In the Leadership Corner, we feature a series of webinars for effective principal practices.
