Product Description

Review

"'This is a remarkable and delightful book, presented in a style reminiscent of a cross between Woody Allen and Ludwig Wittgenstein. Eric Sotto has not so much written as crafted it from a blend of his own experience and a wide knowledge of relevant psychological theory.' R A Becher, Professor of Education, University of Sussex, 1994 '...You have been able to clarify for me, in readable and understandable language, many of the intuitive feelings I have had about teaching all these years but have been unable to articulate.... Your book has also helped me to make sense out of all the conflicting cognitive theories used by psychologists, sociologists and philosophers.... The personalised and anecdotal illustrations of the different points you wished to make were so useful to help understanding' Letter to author from reader in Austria, 1994 'I am finding your book an inspiration... it has set me on a journey of reflection and reinterpretation of my own experiences of teaching and learning.' Letter from lecturer in Social Sciences, The Open University, 1995"

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By V. Strohmaier on 14 Aug 2008
Format: Paperback
This book was recommended to me, as I am about to embark upon a PGCE. It is one of the most useful books I have come across and I would recommend it to both teachers and teaching assistants in any subject. The book is largely intense text, but does contain a few useful black-and-white diagrams (e.g brain diagrams). It discusses methods of learning in a friendly, easy to understand manner. As a new-comer to teaching, I worried that I may struggle with some of the language or aspects, but I'm finding it a pleasure to read and it draws on familiar analogies, the author's experiences and even animal behaviour to highlight the points. This book highlights that an effective teacher knows not just the subject, but how to teach it in accordance with how learning actually happens. It discusses topics such as the difference between learning and remembering, how learning happens e.g. by active engagement, and argues the methods of teaching.
