Which has a bigger impact on learning, student relationships or teacher subject-matter knowledge? Reducing class size or providing formative evaluations for teachers? This class is designed to introduce teachers to robust classroom research covered by Paul Hattie in his book, Visible Learning for Teachers. The research included in this collection covered 240 million students over 15 years and 50,000+ research studies and delivered the biggest collection of evidence-based research into what actually works in schools to improve learning. Teachers will read the book, discuss the findings, and create lessons to share with the SchoolBoost community.
