    I dedicate this book to children everywhere and especially those most dear to me, Megan and Jessica, that they will always find the joy of learning and reach their potential to meet the challenges of this ever-changing world. And to teachers present and future, that they always consider their vocation as a mission of passion and determination to be and do their best.


    I wish to thank, first of all, Jessica Allan, senior acquisitions editor at Corwin. Her advice, encouragement, and enthusiasm for the project helped see me through to completion. Melanie Birdsall, senior project editor, and Lynn Weber and Katie Crilley were diligent in their monitoring and shepherding of the editing process. Jill Margulies and David Galinato are to be commended for their attention to the details of cover design and marketing materials.

    Thanks too to Kristin Anderson and Ainsley Rose for their knowledge and expertise in Visible Learning Plus. Without these talented dedicated professionals this book couldn’t have come to fruition. Also to Michael Fullan and John Hattie for their brilliance in writing and championing change for the better for children everywhere.
