This term the Benfleet Teaching School Alliance's Hot Topic Book Club for teachers will explore a 30 minute podcast from BBC Radio 4's series 'The Educators' which we hope you will find both accessible (more manageable than a book) and very thought provoking - not to say controversial!

 

Well known Radio 4 'Today' Programme presenter, Sarah Montague, interviews the people whose ideas are challenging the future of education.  In this episode, Sarah interviews Professor John Hattie, author of 'Visible Learning for Teachers: Maximizing Impact on Learning', a meta-analysis of thousands of pieces of research, which provides answers to such questions as: 

 

"What really works in schools and classrooms? How much difference can homework and class size make to a child's ability?" 

 

John Hattie is Professor of Education at the University of Melbourne and Chair of the Australian Institute of Teaching and School Leadership.  Over 20 years, he carried out one of the biggest pieces of education research, compiling studies from previous decades and comparing the effect they have on attainment and ability.

 

His work is ongoing but the results show a league table of effectiveness.  It reinforces things you might expect, such as the importance of teachers, but also offers some surprises that might have parents and teachers questioning their priorities!
