This book was written for practitioners and so does not reference research throughout as you might see in an academic publication.  However, the authors are all well-published researchers in the area of K-12 blended and online teaching.

If you are interested in the research related to the K-12 Blended Teaching Readiness model that is used to organize this book, below are some references that you can look up.  Also, please feel free to reach out via email to or any of the other authors.

Below are some publications related to the PICRAT framework that we use in section 2.3 of the book as a tool for evaluating blended activities.
