This book is marvellous. It's all too easy for those of us fascinated by thinking, emotion, and motivation to get caught up in lovely theories about these processes. What Does This Look Like in the Classroom? brings us back to reality to focus on the classroom utility of education research, and offers practical applications for teachers and administrators. --Professor Dan Willingham, University of Virginia I read a great many education books. I love the ones that ask the right questions to make me think and challenge my own views. BINGO! Without doubt this book focuses on the questions that we all need to answer; anyone that can influence practice in their school must read this. Quite simply this book will be a big driver to improving my school and I will never become a victim of the Abilene paradox again. --Vic Goddard, Head of Passmores Academy There are no panaceas or silver bullets for what works in classroom. There is however, sound research that gives us all at least the starting point to consider and develop our own practice. Carl and Robin provide you with access to a lot of this and then point you in the direction of even more. Great read, practical and informative. --George Gilchrist
