Geoff Petty

Making use of research on what classroom techniques have the biggest impact on pupil achievement, this book helps teachers to use these methods in their teaching.

Based on a meta-analysis of half a million classroom experiments, Petty offers over 50 teaching techniques that have been found to raise pass rates by 20 to 30 per cent.

Drawing on John Hattie’s work, the book has separate chapters on different classroom techniques and explains how effective each approach is, paying particular attention to formative assessment. It also covers self-assessment; critical thinking; feedback; discipline; and class management. 

In listing research, EdCentral makes no judgment or recommendation as to its quality, validity or methodology and none should be inferred. Through peer ratings left by education practitioners, EdCentral’s aim is to support the development of a repository of shared knowledge and experience.
