Teachers understand that flexible, committed and motivated learners are well equipped to deal with whatever comes their way in terms of challenges and opportunities. Hard-pressed to cover curriculum content, though, teachers don't always have time to research or devise study skills materials. This second edition of the Learning to Learn Pocketbook condenses into one pocket-size companion numerous practical techniques for successful learning. Aimed at Primary and Secondary teachers in the UK and overseas, Learning to Learn's practical strategies for registering, retaining, recalling and revising, are suitable for use with students in lessons. Based 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 is the focus of the remainder. From slicing, mind mapping 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 - using curriculum based examples - demonstrated. Author Tom Barwood is a former teacher and now runs Likeminds consulting. He has visited hundreds of schools through Britain, mainland Europe and the Middle East. He has worked with pupils across the age and ability range, with teachers from NQTs to headteachers, and in groups of 5 to 500.
