    Visible Literacy Learning, Visible Learning for Mathematics, and  Visible Learning for Science, Grades K-12: What Works Best to Optimize Student Learning are based on John Hattie's research. In more than 15 years he has synthesized over 800 meta-studies on learning and achievement and has identified instructional strategies that have the biggest impact on student learning. Based on this evidence the authors discuss literacy learning and teaching.


    (1) Surface and deep learning: How to use the right approach at the right time? How do you intentionally design classroom experiences that hit the surface, deep, and transfer phases of learning?  When is a student ready to dive from surface to deep?


    (2) Activities and routines: Which ones are most effective at specific phases of learning? Word sorts, concept mapping, close reading, annotating, discussion, formative assessment, feedback, collaborative learning,  and reciprocal teaching.


    (3) Eight mind frames for teachers: How do they apply to curriculum planning? How can they inspire you to be a change agent in students’ lives? How to see visible teaching as a continual evaluation of one’s impact on student’s learning?


    The authors think: “It’s time we embrace the evidence, and update our classrooms.”
