Effective Educational Practices. Educational Practices Series--3.
Walberg, Herbert J.; Paik, Susan J.
This booklet focuses on aspects of effective education that appear to be universal in formal schooling. The practices, which are generally for use in elementary and secondary classrooms, show large, positive learning effects for students in widely varying conditions. Information in the booklet is based on research spanning half a century. Each section begins by presenting findings from the research, then follows up with a discussion of the topic in the classroom. The 10 sections are as follows: (1) "Parent Involvement"; (2) "Graded Homework"; (3) "Aligned Time on Task"; (4) "Direct Teaching"; (5) "Advance Organizers"; (6) "The Teaching of Learning Strategies"; (7) "Tutoring"; (8) "Mastery Learning"; (9) Cooperative Learning"; and (10) "Adaptive Education."
