Do you want to have an even larger effect on how well students do at school? Then, you’re in luck. This, Crash Course In Evidence Based Teaching highlights what you can do to have the largest impact possible on your students’ results.
Most teachers want to help their students excel and that is why I created this practical course in evidence based teaching. And, knowing how pressed for time teachers are, I’ve kept it short and sweet.
You have probably heard that teachers can have a large and positive impact on how well their students do at school. It’s true – but it’s not the whole truth. The reality is that not all teachers do. Some teachers have a much greater effect on their students than other teachers have. It’s not because they work harder than their colleagues do – they do work hard, but so do most teachers. They have a larger impact because of the way that they approach their work as a teacher.
Studies that take into account all the available evidence on teacher effectiveness suggest that students placed with high-performing teachers will progress three times as fast as those placed with low-performing teachers.
