Doing What Works
Doing What Works (DWW) is partnered with the Association for Middle Level Education's Professional Development/Learning Services Department to align research-based best practices with the 16 vital characteristics of middle level education as detailed in This We Believe (2010). The objective of this collaboration is supplement the professional development/learning resources provided by AMLE with research, best practices, and instructional strategies from U.S Department of Education (USDOE) research conducted with school districts and educational researchers. Much of the DWW content is based on information from What Works Clearinghouse (WWC).
