John Hattie has produced a huge and very influential study on what works in the classroom. He has published several books on this evidence based approach to teaching. The video below is a good introduction and summary to his main ideas. In it, he outlines his findings on feedback, relationships, expectations and challenge (and failure).

He concludes the presentation (there is also a first part to it on youtube) by summarising what he wants teachers to do/have:

– clear learning intentions

– challenging success criteria

– range of learning strategies

– knowing when students are not progressing

– providing feedback

– learning themselves
