Description

Challenging Learning offers advice and techniques for helping children of all ages develop into confident, thoughtful and independent learners. Based around the acronym ASK (Attitudes, Skills and Knowledge), this essential guide explores attitudes, skills and knowledge to learning. It considers the strategies that can help teachers to challenge their pupils to think more skilfully and logically and how to develop these techniques more effectively. Drawing on the latest research from some of the most respected experts in the field, Challenging Learning encourages independent thinking and a spirit of inquiry in pupils of all ages. Through the use of rich examples of classroom interactions, this book offers strategies that will help pupils to produce their own thoughtful conclusions, develop their own concepts, examine logic and remain open to alternatives. Highlights include: * effective teaching strategies including FACTS, the Teaching Target Model and the Learning Pit Models; * up-to-date research and theory from leading experts; * practical suggestions and principles to help you design and develop your own lessons. For everyone living or working with children - particularly teachers, parents, carers and youth workers - this book shows some of the best ways to enhance children's learning, including how to question, praise, give feedback and encourage more effectively.show more
