The Power of Language: Developing High Impact Teaching Strategies with Effective Classroom Discourse

Professor John Hattie’s Visible Learning research has now ranked over 250 influences that are related to learning outcomes from highly impactful, positive effects to negative effects. His meta-analyses have concluded that strategies emphasizing feedback, including classroom discussion, have a strong, positive effect on student learning and achievement outcomes. As a self-proclaimed teacher that “talks too much,” Sophie Murphy, under the direct guidance of Hattie as her lead supervisor, began investigating effective talk and questioning through the eyes of students.
