Product description

Review

"In this enlightening book, the author provides a comprehensive analysis of skilled performance and its acquisition, from a holistic and functional point of view. Since the book is, in addition, full of practical advice on the teaching and learning of skills, it will, I believe, benefit every educator and self-educator who reads it with the care and attention it deserves."-Israel Scheffler, Director, Philosophy of Education Research Center, Harvard University

Synopsis

This work presents basic principles in teaching and learning skills as fundmental to all education. These principles include breaking down the elements of a skill into manageable parts. The book is divided into three sections: basic learning blocks and ways of overcoming them; the role of bodily awareness and control in skilled performance; and sample cases with the educations principles applied. Dimon shows how typical mechanical repetition and drills fail to give students necessary insight not only into the process of learning but into the self.
