I agree that reviewing research may be helpful, but there is research
that supports just about everything and anything. Be careful to make
sure that the articles you read are trustworthy. Sometimes good common
sense and experience are the best sources of information. I would
suggest that you read good research articles, but also talk to
successful teachers.
