Research on Practices from Schools that Work

Edutopia's Schools That Work series profiles K-12 schools, districts, and programs that are dramatically improving the way students learn. We get close to the teachers, students, principals, and other administrators who have changed the future of their schools, and show you how they did it. Read about the research behind the practices at several recently profiled schools:

  • Research Supports Global Curriculum, by Vanessa Vega, Youki Terada (2013)

    Language immersion, global competence, and vibrant professional learning communities enhance student learning at Seattle's John Stanford International School.

  • Research Supports Collaborative Learning, by Vanessa Vega, Youki Terada (2012)

    Collaborative math and discussion-based English help to promote deeper learning, critical thinking, and community at The College Preparatory School in Oakland, California.

  • Research-Supported PBL Practices, by Vanessa Vega (2012)

    At one New Tech Network high school, strategies backed by research make project-based learning effective and engaging for teachers and students.
