Effective teaching and learning practices at the classroom level are evidence-based. They are not content related. In other words, these practices can be used for teaching math, language arts, science, social studies, and the full range of other content areas. When implemented with fidelity and monitored/informed through data, these practices have the capacity to product sustained, positive results for every student.

Missouri Collaborative Work is focusing on selected teaching and learning practices consistent with Visible Learning with demonstrated high effect size.

To learn more about Visible Learning and effect size, see these two books by John Hattie.visible learning for teachersvisible learning
