Common Knowledge



What I love about this book is that it gives a teacher a framework for thinking about how to teach students, it is a cyclic framework where we first diagnose to discover as much as we can about each unique student and then plan and try it out and evaluate the impact of our teaching on the students. I love how they share a website where we can look at which practices have large effect size and research to back up the practices ( and I also love how they share a table of high impact research based teaching practices such as the Jigsaw method and also stress the importance of not only knowing the high impact practice, but figuring out how to best apply that strategy in the right context is also key. From this book, I also learned about Mentimeter ( which lets the teacher create a poll to ask questions to the learners to get feedback from the students.… (more)

Review from Google Books:
In November 2008, John Hattie’s ground-breaking book Visible Learning synthesised the results of more than fifteen years research involving millions of students and represented the biggest ever collection of evidence-based research into what actually works in schools to improve learning.

Visible Learning for Teachers takes the next step and brings those ground breaking concepts to a completely new audience. Written for students, pre-service and in-service teachers, it explains how to apply the principles of Visible Learning to any classroom anywhere in the world. The author offers concise and user-friendly summaries of the most successful interventions and offers practical step-by-step guidance to the successful implementation of visible learning and visible teaching in the classroom.… (more)
