Learn to Teach : Teach to Learn Paperback / softback

Description

Learn to Teach explores the most up-to-date findings on how children learn, to help teachers create effective learning environments and plan for teaching.

Drawing on a neo-Vygotskian approach to learning, it covers the purpose of education; socio-cultural approaches to human cognition; attention and intelligence as cognitive tools; and the role of mindsets, memory and language in learning.

It promotes the idea that the mind is a cultural product and that education is best understood as fostering the development of valued cognitive tools appropriate for the twenty-first century.

To provide readers with a holistic understanding of learning, the book explores the significant contributions to the study of learning and teaching from psychologists, sociologists and cultural theorists.

Readers are encouraged to critically engage with - and challenge - some of the prevailing learning theories in order to better understand their students.

Each chapter features classroom observation exercises, discussion questions and links to further reading.
