Often, required research methods courses seem tangential or distant from the goal of teaching Masters programs. This well-organized volume from learning sciences addresses this issue, introducing methods in a thorough but approachable way specifically meant to help teachers use research to augment their teaching. Identifying qualitative and quantitative approaches, analyzing key methods, and describing how teachers can use these tools to effectively adapt research for their own classrooms, this is a practical toolkit grounded in a deep understanding of both the present and future of the field.
