What works in education? The Best Evidence Encyclopedia (BEE) presents reliable, unbiased reviews of research-proven educational programs to help policy makers, principals, teachers, and researchers do their jobs. Here are examples of how you can use the BEE in your work.
Teachers can use the BEE to support their work on school improvement committees. Reviewing program ratings can be a starting point for identifying an effective program to adopt at their school. Teachers can also download handouts to distribute at committee meetings, such as educator’s summaries of programs for math or reading, or a checklist for determining the effectiveness of a program.
For their own professional development, teachers can read about proven instructional approaches, such as cooperative learning, for ideas they can implement in their classrooms.
