Editorial Reviews

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

This book has become the foundation for all of the work I do. I serve as a Special Education administrator and now reference this as we look to trying new strategies, providing professional learning for teachers, and prioritizing time for different things (e.g. test prep vs. progress monitoring). It's a regular reference for me. The only con is that it's not available on Kindle yet so I can't have it with me everywhere I go!

Whether you are a classroom teacher, school leader, or involved in training educators, you should always keep a copy Visible Learning for Teachers close by. This is both a great reference for educational research and a comprehensive guide for planning and presenting meaningful instruction to students of all levels. Hattie's work can also serve as a standard against which other educational publications can be measured. I have noticed that he is widely quoted and misquoted by other authors who seem to be trying to ride the wake of his astounding work. Read Hattie first.

Hattie's latest is like his previous work, Visible Learning: it is a great read full of ideas that are able to be implemented in classrooms and across schools straight away. Key ideas are repeated at various times so you come away with some essential tools that are easy to recall.

I consider this book important enough that it should become compulsory reading for administrators of schools. A book to which I will continuously return.

John Hattie does a wonderful job of taking research and illuminating how teachers make a visible difference in student learning. Creating lifelong learners is the goal of teachers who are learning experts. Every legislator in our country needs to study the work of John Hattie and look to the successes of other countries like Finland. Investing in teachers who can make learning "visible" is the answer to our economic crisis. Education is the answer!

As the title implies, it provides thought provoking ways of making learning very visible not only to the teacher but to assist students in recognizing their learning.

Tried different best practices and yet feeling defeated in the classroom? Overwhelmed by the numerous strategies available, and feeling frustrated? This book helps keep teaching in perspective as it challenges teachers' teaching and learning paradigm.
