Agency, self-regulation, motivation, for far too long we've chased these outcomes without a plan. But now this: a Teacher's Guide for the most important curriculum of all-teaching learners how to learn.
Douglas Fisher and Nancy Frey deliver, with coauthors John Hattie and Karen Flories, the lessons and tools you need to teach students to thrive using the tenets of Visible Learning.
With 15 focus lessons, you help students to build the skills to become assessment capable: setting learning goals, measuring against success criteria, soliciting feedback, and more. These lessons along with many practical templates correlate with the companion Learner's Notebook.
