The volume addresses three main themes:
*analysis of how educational theory and research may be used to improve student learning and achievement in mathematics, science, and reading;
*examination of how educational theory and research has been used to conceptualize, implement, and evaluate the effects of challenges of large-scale reform; and
*exploration of how different models of intelligence and creativity have informed educational practice.
Viewed as a collective effort to translate theory and research into educational practice, the interventions and programs described by the contributors to this volume represent nearly 200 years of work. As a compendium of successful strategies, this book will help others identify ways to make their own research more useful to their practice communities. As an investigation of persistent, seemingly intractable problems encountered when attempting to connect theory and research to the everyday work of teachers and students in classrooms, the analyses presented in this volume demonstrate where additional work is needed. By examining critical, persistent challenges encountered when attempting to connect educational theory and research to the everyday work of teachers in classrooms and schools, this book will help improve the practical value of educational research and help chart the course for future research.
