The 5-Hour Rule Explained

The five-hour rule was coined by Michael Simmons, founder of Empact. The concept is wonderfully simple: No matter how busy successful people are, they always “set aside at least an hour a day (or five hours a week) over their entire career for activities that can be classified as deliberate practice or learning.”

Simmons traces this phenomenon back to Ben Franklin. “Throughout Ben Franklin's adult life, he consistently invested roughly an hour a day in deliberate learning. I call this Franklin's five-hour rule: one hour a day on every weekday,” Simmons wrote.

For Franklin, his learning time consisted of waking up early to read and write. He established personal goals and tracked his results. In the spirit of today's book clubs, he created a club for "like-minded aspiring artisans and tradesmen who hoped to improve themselves while they improved their community." He also experimented with his new information and asked reflective questions every morning and evening.

To develop teachers, principals needing coaching too, says a new study by Vanderbilt University and Mathematica Policy Research.

 


The research, by Vanderbilt University and Mathematica Policy Research, suggests that radically changing the job description of such supervisors to emphasize coaching and mentoring instead of operations and administration could refocus school communities on improving student achievement, retaining more teachers, and strengthening school climate.

Should School Climate Be A Principal's Top Priority?

New research shows that principals' greatest impact on student achievement comes through improving school climate. Ross Wiener shares how educators can act on this finding.

 


According to study co-author and director of UChicago's Consortium for School Research Elaine Allensworth:


A lot of times people think school climate is something you work on and take care of so you can get to the real work of teaching and learning, but what we find is learning is inherently social and emotional. If students don't feel safe and engaged, they aren't learning.


This echoes the scientific consensus statements on How We Learn produced by the National Commission on Social, Emotional, and Academic Development's Council of Distinguished Scientists (and, indeed, it reinforces the very name of this blog: Learning Is Social and Emotional!). These findings validate the National Commission's focus on safe, inclusive learning environments as critical to improving academic achievement and genuine readiness for college, careers, and life
