    What if everyone could just ID their fears, put them right out on the table per se, and then get on with whatever work needs to be done?

    The key to high quality teaching is to retain teachers in their schools. Remember that it takes 10k hours of practice to get to the top!

    Drop “but” from vocab. Replace with “and.” (But = “Here’s problem with what you said.” “And” = “Brilliant, let me take it a step further.”)

Marginal Learning Gains

Marginal learning gains is inspired by the same philosophy that underpinned the extraordinary success of Team GB Cycling at the Beijing and London Olympics. The philosophy is simple: focus on doing a few small things really well. Once you do this, aggregating the gains you make will become part of a bigger impact on learning. For students, for teachers and schools. Join the MLG conversation with Zoe Elder @fullonlearning on Twitter
