New research out on what students don’t know about research

This is a must-read!  What students don’t know is recent and relevant research undertaken in universities in the US – and provides clear evidence that we need to do better in schools at preparing students for academic research.  This could also be applied to living and learning in the real, everyday world.

Useful for self-advocacy, professional development for teachers, budget applications, need I go on?

My suggestion?  Read, and take action to spread the word.  Tweet, put excerpts in school newsletters, share with staff via your blog, by email, send to your principal and ask if you can talk to him or her about it when they’ve had a chance to read it.
