Peak: Secrets from the New Science of Expertise

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth reading, 15 Jun. 2016

Having read many of Ericsson's papers I wasn't expect to learn much, but the narrative style and the ways in which he synthesises a career's worth of research sheds new light on practice and expertise.


The Dangerous Rise of Therapeutic Education
The Dangerous Rise of Therapeutic Education
by Kathryn Ecclestone
Edition: Paperback
Price: £21.45

5.0 out of 5 stars Every teacher should read this book, 15 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If I'd read this book when it was first published I might have hated it. But the more I've read and learned (and written) about education the more convinced I've become that this book has it right. Reading it 2016 it feels like coming home - familiar, reassuring. I can only imagine the shock waves it must have produced on publication.

The case study approach the author's take is compelling and, although their take is necessarily partial, the case they build is damning. Every teacher should read this book.

The clarity, precision, deftness and authenticity of this book make it an essential addition to any teacher's professional library. The strategies suggested are grounded solidly in research and steeped in wisdom and experience. And the illustrations genuinely add to the unfolding narrative. A gem.

5.0 out of 5 stars ...but this book is right side up!, 21 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is cracking read! An intelligent romp through the assumptions and confusions of the US education system which reveals much of what we're getting wrong in England. Kalenze is a must read for anyone interested in how we might really go about instilling character and virtue in our students.

5.0 out of 5 stars True love, 21 Jun. 2015
This book is a deeply human journey through a career, a life, in teaching. It's a beautiful book. I don't agree with everything John says, but the way he says it - oh! of that I have the deepest admiration. Reading Love Over Fear is to fall in love; with teaching, with students and with John. I can think of no school leader I look up to more and no one who I would rather work for.
