Ahead of Thursday’s (27th July, 8.30 – 9.00pm) **#UKEdResChat** on communicating educational research I thought I would check and update my **Reading series of pages** which includes some very useful educational research summaries.

The various pages on free books have also been checked and updated. With the new A Level Specifcations coming perhaps **some of those old textbooks** might come in handy and will take older readers on a trip down memory lane – anyone for **Porter’s Further Elementary Analysis?!**

**Several books are available** – answers included.

…..

On research, note in particular the pages **Research – Learning & Teaching** and **Research – Mathematics Learning and Teaching**.

From Harvard Graduate School of Education, see **Communicating Research** with readings, tips and strategies for clear expression. There are many good points here for communication generally not just in communicating research.

Select ‘Find by topic’ for a menu of Usable Topics’; try **Teaching** for example for a further menu including the chance to ‘Ask a researcher’. The series, **Ask a Researcher**, offers evidence-based guidance for the classroom in the areas of literacy, mathematics, and English language learning.

Excellent examples of clear communication are:

**Research in 100 Words **from Chris Moyse who descibes this series as “Simple summaries for busy teachers”. Also from Chris, his favourite **research articles in one collection**.

Easy to digest research on Mathematics education from **Cambridge Mathematics**, see their **Espresso page** where in their words, “Each month we bring you an Espresso – a small but intense draught of filtered research on mathematics education, expressly designed with teachers in mind. Each Espresso considers one particular issue in mathematics education, and how the latest good-quality research can provide helpful guidance or further reading.”
