Learning to Learn. Teachers’ Pocketbook.
£9.99 exc. VAT
It was in response to requests from teachers that Learning to Learn came to be written. Hard-pressed to cover what to learn, finding time to research or devise materials on how to learn was, we were told, a problem. Tom Barwood’s highly- regarded workshops for teachers and students in schools address just this issue – and now so does his pocketbook. Working on the premise that successful learning depends partly on knowing why you want to learn, the first part of the book looks at motivation. How to learn – registering, retaining, recalling, revising – is the focus of the remainder. From slicing, mind-mappng and learning styles, through mnemonics, mind pegs and the seven keys of memory, to reviewing, snowballing and recording, the art of learning is explored and demonstrated. Full of practical, fun techniques for successful learning, this is a book for teachers and their students.
