In this episode, Dr. John Hattie, Professor at the University of Melbourne in Australia, reflects on his years of research in the field of education, most notably, his 25-plus years dedicated to Visible Learning and how effect size can serve as a North Star toward improved classroom instruction. Among the many topics discussed include understanding the true meaning behind data-driven decisions, how educators too often use Hattie's Effect Size numbers as a "check list" rather than a holistic approach for better teaching and why principals should become more laser focused on instructional leadership to change schools. In the end, Hattie's goal is to change the narrative from "how we teach, to what works best" through the nine different categories of visible learning research. Website: www.visiblelearning.com.

In this episode, internationally-acclaimed child psychologist and New York Times best-selling author Dr. Ross Greene discusses his research that includes the Collaborative & Proactive Solutions (CPS) model for effectively managing child behavior and explains why kids with social, emotional and behavioral challenges are often misunderstood. He also shares insights as to why the traditional reward and punishment approach to school discipline often fails kids as we place the focus on correcting behavior rather than true problem solving. From his books, Raising Human Beings, The Explosive Child, Lost At School and Lost and Found, Dr. Greene lays out a three-step plan that includes empathy, defining adult expectations and offering the child an invitation to become a partner in solving challenges in the classroom. As the Developer and Executive Producer of the award-winning documentary The Kids We Lose, Dr. Greene closes the episode by shinning a light on the dark side of how too many kids are mistreated and manhandled in our schools due to high levels of frustration and hopelessness.
