Impact Series


Enhance School Capability of High-Impact Practices 

When John Hattie synthesized his research, he found five key themes – or strands as we like to call them - that help accelerate student learning: Feedback, visible Learners, the visible teacher, know thy impact, and systems and processes. The Impact Series is a collection of electives designed to enhance school capability around these key themes so teachers can have the greatest impact on students’ learning.
