Doing what works Web site.
"Doing What Works"--available at http://dww.ed.gov--provides an online library of resources for teaching practices that have proven to be effective. It draws primarily from the evaluations of research findings compiled for the What Works Clearinghouse (WWC), which was established in 2002 by the Department's Institute of Education Sciences.
For practical applications based on the findings of WWC, the Web site includes:
* Videos of leading researchers discussing the research base behind high-quality instructional practices;
* Slideshows illustrating strategies that have been successful in teaching teaching English language learners (ELLs) at schools around the country; and
* Downloadable tools to help teachers identify their strengths and weaknesses for improving ELL instruction.
The site is also ideal for building professional development activities for groups of teachers. Other topics will cover: cognition and learning; early childhood education; high school reform; literacy; math and science; and school restructuring.
