10 Mindframes for Visible Learning : Exclusive 10 Pack


The original Visible Learning research concluded that one of the most important influencers of student achievement is how teachers think about learning and their own role. In Ten Mindframes for Visible Learning, John Hattie and Klaus Zierer define the ten behaviors or mindframes that teachers need to adopt in order to maximize student success.

These include:

* thinking of and evaluating your impact on students’ learning;
* the importance of assessment and feedback for teachers;
* working collaboratively and the sense of community;
* the notion that learning needs to be challenging;
* engaging in dialogue and the correct balance between talking and listening;
* conveying the success criteria to learners;
* building positive relationships.

These powerful mindframes, which should underpin every action in schools, are founded on the principle that teachers are evaluators, change agents, learning experts, and seekers of feedback who are constantly engaged with dialogue and challenge.

A Close Look at Close Reading: Teaching Students to Analyze Complex Texts, Grades 6-12

Authors - Barbara Moss, Kelly Johnson, Maria C Grant &Diane Lapp

"While middle years and secondary school teachers want and need students to connect with, analyse and learn from both literary and informational texts, many are unsure how to foster the skills students must have in order to develop deep and nuanced understanding of complicated content. Is there a process to follow? How is close reading different from shared reading and other common literacy practices? How do you prepare students to have their ability to analyse complex texts measured by high-stakes assessments? And how do you fit close reading instruction and experiences into an already crowded curriculum?

Literacy experts Barbara Moss, Diane Lapp, Maria Grant and Kelly Johnson answer these questions and more as they explain how to teach middle years and secondary school to be close readers, how to make close reading a habit of practice across the content areas and why doing so will build content knowledge. Informed by the authors’ extensive field experience and enriched by dozens of real-life scenarios and downloadable tools and templates, this book explores:

1. text complexity and how to determine if a particular text is right for your learning purposes and your students;
2. the process and purpose of close reading, with an emphasis on its role in developing the 21st century thinking, speaking and writing skills essential for academic communication and college and career readiness;
3. how to plan ,teach and manage close reading sessions across the academic disciplines, including the kinds of questions to ask, texts to use and supports to provide; and
4. how to assess close reading and help all students – regardless of linguistic, cultural or academic background – connect deeply with what they read and derive meaning from complex texts.

Equipping students with the tools and process of close reading sets them on the road to becoming analytical and critical thinkers – and empowered and independent learners. In this comprehensive resource, you’ll find everything you need to start their journey.

Help students become more confident and successful readers, writers, and thinkers in today's world.
