When students know how to learn, they are able to become their own teachers. --Nancy Frey, Douglas Fisher, and John Hattie
Imagine students who describe their learning in these terms: I know where I'm going, I have the tools I need for the journey, and I monitor my own progress. Now imagine the extraordinary difference this type of ownership makes in their progress over the course of a school year.
This illuminating book shows how to make this scenario an everyday reality. With its foundation in principles introduced in the authors' bestselling Visible Learning for Literacy, this resource delves more deeply into the critical component of self-assessment, revealing the most effective types of assessment and how each can motivate students to higher levels of achievement.
