Teaching One-Pagers

Evidence-informed summaries for busy educational professionals

Ask any teacher and they would say workload is one of the biggest blockers to their professional development. Simply put, most teachers are time-poor and too busy to engage with educational research to improve their classroom instruction. One-pagers are ultra-concise, A4-sized summaries that share important ideas about good teaching. In this practical volume, Jamie Clark presents more than 55 evidence-informed one-pagers that help educators reflect on their practice, build pedagogical knowledge, and prompt professional conversations with colleagues.

Jamie Clark is the Team Leader of Learning and Innovation at a K-12 school in Perth, Western Australia. Originally from Huddersfield in West Yorkshire, Jamie taught English in the UK for six years before immigrating to Australia with his family. Jamie is also a lead practitioner specialising in pedagogy and digital learning. He regularly provides professional learning workshops for educators and leaders and has spoken at various educational conferences around the Asia Pacific region. Jamies passion is instructional coaching and driving good practice through research-based, high-impact strategies. When he isnt working, Jamie enjoys being outdoors, playing football and spending time with his family and friends.

More and more teachers around the world are taking the time and expending the effort to truly develop their own expertise in teaching.
