Applying Educational Research focuses
on relating research to practice, helping educators see the
relevance of research to their daily work. This goal of
making research relevant is accomplished by focusing on current
“problems of practice.­” Each chapter highlights a set
of important issues for teachers, students, and
schools—-­issues like teacher evaluation, the effectiveness of
close-­reading strategies, and the use of
computer-­supported instruction. The research examples and
articles in the chapter then address these issues, providing
students a meaningful context for the information they are learning
about research methods. Through this approach, students learn about
the research process and current research on topics that directly
impact practice.

The most dangerous happenings at the mystery discussion group, held at Time and Again Bookstore every Tuesday night, are the arguments between the members about the finer points of the mystery genre. History professor Ryan Stevens dozes happily during the loud disagreements. Being a closet reader of Westerns with no knowledge of mysteries beyond Poe and Sherlock Holmes, Ryan is only a member of the group because he is the bosom companion and very best friend of Megan Clark, board certified forensic anthropologist with a specialty in paleopathology. In other words, Megan autopsies mummies and examines human remains and other archaeological artifacts. Or rather, she would if she could find a job. There being very limited job opportunities in her field, Megan works at the Amarillo Public Library, and pursues various hobbies and sports to alleviate boredom. When Megan and Ryan stumble over the body of Lisa Heredia, spiteful and unpopular member of the discussion group, propped . . .

Planning to write a paper for Smithsonian Magazine on the cultural significance of string figures, such as Cat's Cradle, librarian and unemployed paleopathologist Dr. Megan Clark has a wonderful idea that will help her with her research. She will organize a convention and invite all the members of the International String Figure Association to attend. She invites the Murder by the Yard Reading Circle to forgo discussing mysteries and help her with her convention. The membership, eccentrics all, and recently introduced to making string figures themselves by Megan, enthusiastically agree, even Ryan Stevens, history professor and Megan's best friend. Ryan mainly agrees because he sees no way that Megan can get into trouble at a string figure convention. What's the worse that can happen? She gets tangled up in her own string? When a long-­lost manuscript about string figure art is offered for silent auction by a greedy and very unpleasant conventioneer, Ryan discovers that Megan Clark . . .

A Lincoln Continental driven by Amy Steele, wife of millionaire rancher, James Steele, rams a tanker full of gasoline. Instant incineration of both drivers; a probable accident, according to Sergeant Larry Jenner of the Amarillo Police Department. Eight months later, it?­Äôs murder, according to Sergeant Ed Schroder of the Special Crimes Unit, and the probable murderer is the widower. Standing between James Steele and Sergeants Jenner and Schroder is John Lloyd Branson, reputed to be the best criminal defense attorney Texas.

At first glance, he was a fine figure of a man. Even the butcher knife buried in the middle of his chest didn't seriously detract ffrom his good looks. But that corpse, nude except for a pair of mismatched socks--­and the butcher knife , of course--­is trouble with a capital T for Leroy MacPherson, in whose wheat field the body is dumped, and rest of his extended family. It's also trouble for the opponents of the nuclear waste depository the DOE plans to build in the Texas Panhandle. The victim is Charlton Price-­Leigh III, whose job it is--­or was--­to persuade local residents that burying radioactive waste in their backyards presented very little danger. That's not what MacPhearson and his neighbors believe, and its not what attorney John Lloyd Branson believes either. When John Lloyd and his legal clerk, Lydia Fairchild, take on MacPhearson's defense, they find themselves entangled in a series of deceptions. Whatever they see, whatever a witness says, can not be trusted. Even the . . .

The preacher's bride is a truck stop waitress half his age with a reputation that horrifies his congregation, and a free and easy way with the male membership. Still, no one expects Reverend David Hailey to stone his wife to death. But that isn't the worst of Hailey's acts. Substituting his wife's body for the Virgin Mary in the Nativity Scene is a worse act of sacrilege than murder. With feelings at a fever pitch in the little Texas town of Canadian, John Lloyd Branson steps in to defend the reverend. But first he must learn why the preacher killed his wife, then he must persuade his legal clerk, Lydia Fairchild, that he is not deliberately throwing the case by his seemingly inept courtroom strategy.

Crawford County, Texas, hadn't had a deliberate homicide in 80 years, and Sheriff Charles Matthews liked that statistic just fine, particularly since his department wasn't generously endowed with manpower. He had one deputy who took pride in how far he could spit tobacco and another one who couldn't tell his backside from his elbow. Neither of these deputies bothered Crawford County because folks understood them. They didn't altogether understand Charles Matthews. It wasn't his law degree- lots of folks had law degrees and were still respectable-­and it wasn't the fact he was from Dallas. It wasn't even because he never told anybody why he left Dallas. It was because Charles had no nickname in an area where nicknames were as common as sagebrush. Still, Crawford County took Charles at face value as a good man until he proved otherwise. When Billy Joe Williams was murdered on a lonely county road, Charles knew that someone else counted on being taken at face value.

With only the sketches, the foot prints of Johnny Brentwood, and very little else, Charles focuses on the eerie links between past and present events. Were Willie's sketches the story of the past, or a portent of the future?

Enrique Armijo, archaeologist, and in his own mind, the world's authority on the Folsom Man culture, is spying on a ritual performed by the so-­called Skin People in the crater of Capulin Mountain, an extinct volcano in northern New Mexico. He doesn't expect to be murdered. He certainly doesn't expect the weapon to be a prehistoric atl-­atl. Back in Crawford County, Texas, Sheriff Charles Matthews doesn't expect a call from his deputy, Raul Trujillo, about the archaeologist's murder and the bizarre weapon used. He certainly doesn't expect to hear that the atl-­atl has been found in his deputy's hotel room and that Raul is charged with murder. Knowing that no matter what the evidence says, Raul didn't murder anyone, Charles leaves his badge behind in Texas and steps into New Mexican Sheriff Kit Lindman's territory to prove his deputy and friend innocent.

Highwater Highwater, Texas, Population: 455 is an anthology of short tales set in Highwater Texas. The first, “Highwater”, finds Elizabeth Walker, candidate for Justice of the Peace, in Buddy’s Cafe sitting at the round table reserved for Bonham County’s elected officials, all men, and other prominent citizens, also men. The subject is Eliabeth’s suitability for the job of Justice of the Peace, whether poking at dead bodies is something a lady ought to do. Of course, Highwater hasn’t had an unnatural homicide since Nadine Hatcher caught her husband in bed with the hired girl and ventilated his hide with a 12 gauge shotgun. Ed Hays figures the jury should have found Nadine not guilty since her husband’s death was the natural consequence of his own sinning. Of course, Ed was sensitive about infidelity since his wife Jenny ran off the Pro-­Seed salesman ten years ago. Which brings up an interesting point. Why hasn’t Ed divorced Jenny and vice versa? Why would Ed, who never gave away . . .
