Continue the Visible Learning Journey With Your Students

The power of Visible Learning is simple yet transforming: Help your students understand how to learn, and they can become their own teachers. 

These learner’s notebooks are the first of their kind to continue the journey of Visible Learning by helping students monitor their own progress. With an emphasis on developing and strengthening foundational metacognitive skills, the notebooks guide students to understand what they’re learning, why they’re learning it, and the strategies they need along the way.

Even young learners will become more focused as they use the notebook’s metaphor of a trip to prepare for and embark on their learning journey.

Structured to support an entire school year’s worth of learning, these notebooks help every student in your class achieve success by putting the power of Visible Learning at their fingertips.
