Evidence-Based Teaching A Practical Approach 2nd ED  Ref: EVBATE
Teaching is about to embark on a revolution and, like medicine, abandon custom and practice, and fashions and fads to become evidence-based. Half a million experiments in real classrooms have uncovered the teaching methods that work best. These can improve students’ attainment by two grades compared with conventional practice. Over 50 of these top teaching methods are examined in this book and these methods, some old, some new:
* can each raise pass rates by 20 per cent to 30 per cent.
* are creative, challenging, and greatly enjoyed by students.
* require the learner to do more in class …. and the teacher less!
* equip students for progression, by ‘teaching intelligence’.
