Cognition and Learning: Instructional Strategies

Research in cognition and learning can provide teachers with specific strategies for organizing instruction to facilitate learning, to help students remember what they have learned, and to help them to transfer what they have learned to new situations. The IES Practice Guide, Organizing Instruction and Study to Improve Student Learning, describes research-based strategies that are applicable across subjects, including social studies, science, and mathematics. This collection includes expert researcher interviews and multimedia overviews related to each recommended practice in the Practice Guide.
