About the SCIENCE OF SCHOOL

This site is meant to be a resource for educators who wish to apply the most current research- and experience-based practices into their classroom. For most educators, our certification classes were heavy on educational theory with very little in the way of practical experience. When we start teaching, we quickly find ourselves bogged down in day-to-day operations with no time to apply or search out theories of education. The SCIENCE OF SCHOOL aims to wed practical experience with academic theory in an easy-to-digest format for teachers on the move. What should be the best approaches in education, but most importantly, where is the evidence to prove it?
