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

I'm normally so busy preparing, marking and juggling family life that if I have time to read it's non-fiction for enjoyment. However, this book was an easy read... and I even enjoyed it! The ideas are put across in a simple way, with clear application for a classroom teacher - I will certainly be recommending this to my colleagues!
Thanks very much for pulling together the views of so many experts - and showing clearly where current research is and how to apply it in the classroom.
My only criticism is that I found it very difficult to find specific topics without trawling through the whole book. There is no index or list of references so it's difficult to follow up on much of the content. There is a useful further reading section.
