John Almarode, Douglas Fisher, Joseph Assof, Sara Delano Moore, John Hattie, Nancy Frey
It could happen in the morning during homework review. Or perhaps it happens when listening to students as they struggle through a challenging problem. Or maybe even after class, when planning a lesson. At some point, the question arises: How do I influence students' learning -- what's going to generate that light bulb "aha" moment of understanding?
In this sequel to the megawatt best seller Visible Learning for Mathematics, the authors help you answer that question by showing how Visible Learning strategies look in action in the mathematics classroom. Walk in the shoes of middle school teachers as they engage in the 200 micro -decisions-per-minute needed to balance the strategies, tasks, and assessments seminal to high-impact mathematics instruction.
It's not only what works, but when. Exemplary lessons, video clips, and online resources help you leverage the most effective teaching practices at the most effective time to meet the surface, deep, and transfer learning needs of every student.
