Product Description

Review

"Visible Learning for Teachers is a profoundly important book for teachers, school leaders, parents, and policymakers. John Hattie provides the 'jury standard' for educational research. Rather than the typical 'he said, she said' controversy, Hattie has amassed the preponderance of the evidence representing the work of thousands of scholars and more than a quarter-billion children. The jury – teachers, leaders, and parents – need not be swayed by the persuasive power of an individual researcher or the flavor-of-the-month initiative. Rather, we can at last make teaching and leadership decisions based upon the best available evidence from multiple sources. As you read these pages, prepare to be challenged. Hattie forced me to reconsider previously strongly held convictions, but he requires that we elevate the preponderance of the evidence over personal belief. Best of all, Hattie shows us how to determine the impact we have right now with our own students. His methods move education from the 'rear-view mirror' – what happened in other places with other students – to the 'windshield' – what is happening right now with our students. As a result, this book is the most important contribution to educational research and practice in decades."
Douglas Reeves
Founder, The Leadership and Learning Center, USA

"This scope of this text is absolutely staggering. John Hattie deserves to be recognised (and probably will in time) as one of the pioneers of educational and school psychology."
Dr Dave Putwain
Programme Leader, Educational Psychology, Edge Hill University, UK

“Recognising what makes a difference enables reflection on how to do more that makes a positive difference. Reading this book should make obvious the swathes of time-consuming tasks that make no (or worse, negative) impact, making them easy to remove. It is fabulously well-researched.” - Mary Bousted, general secretary, Association of Teachers and Lecturers

Before you buy this book, do yourself a favor and look at all the negative reviews of John Hattie's first book. Half of the calculations are wrong...he calculated z-scores instead of CLE values. This book is based on bad research.

It seems to be too text heavy... I'm not sure teachers would be able to make good use of the information it contains, but parts of it might help facilitators start a discussion around the topics.

Sound advice maybe, but nothing new. Hattie ended his research years ago, then wrote a book about it in 2008. I think this is just a money grab to sell a book when the first one proved to be voluminous and tiring to read. Good teachers have been doing all this for more than the 15 years it took Hattie to do the research. Where do you think his data came from? Teachers.....
I've seen it in teacher libraries over the past year but rarely is it signed out.
Not worth the purchase. If you are a new teacher and want some ideas, borrow it from a friend or your local teacher library.
