It could happen in the morning during homework review. Or perhaps it happens when listening to students as they struggle through a challenging problem. Or maybe even after class, when planning a lesson. At some point, the question arises: How do I influence students' learning—what’s going to generate that light bulb “aha” moment of understanding?
In this sequel to the megawatt best seller Visible Learning for Mathematics, John Almarode, Douglas Fisher, Nancy Frey, John Hattie, and Kateri Thunder help you answer that question by showing how Visible Learning strategies look in action in the mathematics classroom. Walk in the shoes of middle school teachers as they engage in the 200 microdecisionsperminute needed to balance the strategies, tasks, and assessments seminal to highimpact mathematics instruction.
Using gradeleveled examples and a decisionmaking matrix, you’ll learn to
 Articulate clear learning intentions and success criteria at surface, deep, and transfer levels
 Employ evidence to guide students along the path of becoming metacognitive and selfdirected mathematics achievers
 Use formative assessments to track what students understand, what they don’t, and why
 Select the right task for the conceptual, procedural, or application emphasis you want, ensuring the task is for the right phase of learning
 Adjust the difficulty and complexity of any task to meet the needs of all learners
It’s not only what works, but when. Exemplary lessons, video clips, and online resources help you leverage the most effective teaching practices at the most effective time to meet the surface, deep, and transfer learning needs of every student.
