How do we know what works and what doesn’t work in schools? What’s the evidence behind common teaching practices? Which education myths endure despite all the research against them?
What Works? by Lee Elliot Major and Steve Higgins, authors of the Sutton Trust-EEF Teaching and Learning Toolkit, explores 21 common teaching approaches, neatly summarising the research and the hard evidence behind what does and doesn’t work in primary and secondary classrooms.
What Works? has been praised by educators including Ross Morrison McGill (@TeacherToolkit), Professor Dame Alison Peacock, Chief Executive of the Chartered College of Teaching, and Professor Becky Francis, Director of the UCL Institute of Education.
This inspirational book was recently named the 5 star winner of Teach Primary CPD Awards 2020.
The judging panel, from the Teacher Development Trust, said:
“As a resource that can be used on multiple levels by individual teachers, departments or phase teams and senior leaders, this book offers serious value for money. A must have for every school CPD library!”
So how will What Works? help teachers and leaders make an impact in the classroom? Author Lee Elliott Major is here to tell us more.
What are the surprising findings from the research in the book? Steve Higgins talks to Lee Elliott Major about findings from educational research that might seem counterintuitive, including praise, smaller classes, and raising aspirations.
In What Works?, Lee Elliott Major and Steve Higgins present the research and evidence behind each approach and distil this into clear guidance to help teachers and school leaders boost the learning and life outcomes of all pupils.
Here, Lee and Steve give their top tips for primary and secondary teachers to increase their impact in the classroom.
