Doing What Works (DWW) found at http://dww.ed.gov/ is a new website sponsored by the U. S. Department of Education. DWW is dedicated to helping educators identify and make use of effective teaching practices.

Much of the DWW content is based on the Institution of Educational Science's What Works Clearinghouse (WWC). The WWC evaluates research on practices and interventions to let the education community know what is likely to work. For each practice, it issues a guide and/or an intervention report that describes what the practice involves and what the research says. Then, DWW provides examples of possible ways educators might apply those research findings, but these are not necessarily the only ways to carry out these teaching practices.

The Office of Elementary and Secondary Education, the Office of English Language Acquisition, and other U. S. Department of Education offices help to disseminate the tools and resources so that research-based practices can be implemented in our nation's classrooms.

Please become familiar with this valuable resource.
