Tales from the Classroom - Research Renderings Library

The Research Renderings Library project seeks to promote dialogue among educational researchers, practitioners, parents, and community members through Research Renderings.

 

The renderings are very brief, highly concentrated descriptions of research studies with a personal connection made by the author of the short piece with the purpose of offering it to others for consideration. No longer will the best research in education collect dust in journals that parents and teachers don't read! Tales Research Renderings will put cutting-edge and seminal educational research in the hands of those who could benefit from it most - our teachers and parents. 

For those wishing to contribute renderings, scroll to the bottom of the page and click on the paperclip for guidelines.
