Nuthall begins by acknowledging that nothing is as ephemeral as talks (such as his own) delivered to teachers and school leaders. While his presentations to such groups may have had useful content, this left no trace as educators returned to their daily challenges. The purpose of this book, therefore, is to present his insights in a more enduring form. Having made this refreshing start he proceeds to lead the reader through his philosophy of classroom learning, and the processes and findings of his classroom research projects.
The book is characterized by really valuable and thought-provoking insights. For example (from Chapter 1) a big idea is that there are no universally good or bad teachers. Our effectiveness varies with the groups and the content we are teaching. This helps me understand my varying success with different groups and the same content, or different content with one group of students. When we stop thinking "I am a good teacher", and start thinking about who we are a good teacher for (and who we are not a good teacher for) then we have moved to a deeper understanding of our practice. Probably the most important finding from the research presented is that students will learn concepts if they encounter complete ideas three times regardless of ability.Read more ›
