When analyzing the failure of educational
research and best practice to improve classroom instruction and
student achievement, educators often overlook an obvious reason.
Effective professional development must be in place in order for
teachers to translate research into classroom practice. Again
and again, we attempt to implement new instructional innovations,
yet fail to provide teachers with ongoing opportunities to study,
reflect upon, and apply the research on teaching and learning.
