Apr 19 Visible Learning in the Literacy Classroom


Visible Learning in the Literacy Classroom with Douglas Fisher and Nancy Frey
Practices That Best Accelerate Student Learning

This webinar introduces key concepts from the book on what works, and more importantly, when it works.

Fisher and Frey explain the importance of effect size in determining one’s impact on student learning, and explore the learning conditions needed as students go from surface learning, to deeper learning and transfer. Graphic organizers are effective, but when? When is reciprocal teaching best deployed? In collaboration with John Hattie, the authors have aligned literacy practices to phases of learning.

Administrators, curriculum directors, and literacy educators will benefit from this webinar. Participants will:

  • Understand the importance of effect size and how to calculate it.
  • Identify high-impact literacy instructional practices in K-12.
  • Align these practices to the phases to accelerate student literacy learning.
