"Impactful teaching and learning must not be left to chance! The practical applications inherent in Great Teaching by Design, particularly through the DIIE model, cast clarity on how to implement what makes the biggest impact on student learning."

Brandon Pachan, Elementary School Teacher
"Great Teaching by Design uses an asset-based lens that allows educators to gain insight and further extend their understanding of using evidence and intention to design learning. There are multiple examples that show educators how to find a relatable connection from their own learning journey. This book provides strategies and tools to ensure educators are intentionally designing programs that meet the needs of a diverse student population."
Peel District School Board, Brampton, Ontario
Nicole Lafreniere, Director of Curriculum and Assessment
"Great Teaching by Design puts the teacher at the heart of the decision-making process, demonstrating that the deliberate actions teachers take can and do propel students forward in their learning. It demystifies the idea that excellent teachers are born knowing what to do to ensure excellence in their classrooms. The authors encourage concrete and specific action, supported by an easily understood model and underscored by quality research, that will enable a teacher to experience confidence and success in designing quality learning experiences for all learners."

Peter DeWitt, Ed.D., Author/Consultant
"In order to maximize their learning, which will help them move beyond their own expectations, students need impactful teaching. No one has done more research in this area than John Hattie. In Great Teaching by Design Hattie and his co-authors show us that there is so much more we can learn about great teaching, and they provide us with step-by-step instructions on how to do that."

James Nottingham, Creator of the Learning Pit and author of 9 books about teaching and learning
"Teaching techniques are not universal—their outcomes are too contextual. The impact of even the most credible strategy will, in large part, be determined by why it is selected, when it is applied, and how it is received. An understanding of evidence will, of course, help—and there is no one in the world who has helped educators identify what works best more than John Hattie has—but even the best evidence leaves us with the challenge of implementation. That is why this book is so important. The authors show readers how to turn a good idea into great learning for all students. It is a book so practical, profound, and timely that I recommend it as seminal reading for all educators."
