Comment: Well-loved but cared for, and still very readable. The previous owner has certainly very much enjoyed reading this book more than once, therefore please be aware there will be some creasing on the spine or slight shelf wear. If it's been in their collection for some time, say years old or more, some pages might be discoloured and there may be other minor age blemishes, but that won't affect its readability. Shipped from the heart of the British countryside this book will leave our library within a day or two of your order and be with you shortly thereafter.

Product Description

About the Author

Professor Guy Claxton has tested his ideas on building learning power with more than 30 LEAs from the Isles of Scilly to Northumberland and from Kent to Cardiff, and in dozens of practical settings across all phases of education, from Staff Development at Oxford University to Early Years in County Tyrone. He has been a keynote speaker at conferences on learning in America, Australia, Hong Kong and Sweden as well as the UK, and advises the Royal Institution and the OECD on education, creativity and the brain . His 1999 book Wise Up: The Challenge of Lifelong Learning was called the best book I ve read in 30 years by Professor David Hargreaves, ex-head of the UK Qualifications and Curriculum Authority. Guy Claxton is currently Professor of the Learning Sciences at the University of Winchester.

Format: Paperback
An excellent introduction to the principles underlying Guy Claxton's work and how to put them into practice. I began highlighting the key insights and gave up when I found I was highlighting everything. Putting the book's principles into practice has transformed my teaching and the approach of my class and school. It's great to take some of the focus off content and put it onto learning skills. It's also great to pause the relentless focus on quality of teaching and take a look at what and how and why children are learning. PS SATs results went up.

A long time in coming - a down-to-earth inspirational exposition on what learning how to learn in schools is all about. Easy to read with clear models to assist understanding - what do learners do; what teachers and educators can do - it contains loads of ideas for teachers to use immediately. Small changes as big levers to shift the power dynamic in the classroom from the teacher towards the learner. Of course! Highly recommended this will become a classic text, if it's not one already. Enjoy!

I received this book on Friday and have not put it down since. It is a really readable and common sense type of book and I personally cannot wait to get back to the classroom to start putting it into action. It just makes so much sense to encourage learners to develop a love of learning which will take them beyond the classroom and allow them to make the most of their futures.

We are using the book at work to develop resilience, resourcefulness etc. for the young people we mentor. It is a very handy summary and not too wordy.
