ED Launches 'Doing What Works' Web Site

ED Launches 'Doing What Works' Web Site: The Department of Education has launched a new Web site to provide teachers, administrators and other educators with recommendations on effective teaching practices and examples of possible ways to implement those practices to help promote excellence in American education and improve student achievement. According to the department, the new site, Doing What Works, allows users to quickly locate teaching practices that have been found effective by the department's research arm, the Institute of Education Sciences, and similar organizations.
