Additional Book Details

′This book provides a variety of ideas for use in the classroom, based on practical applications of the conceptual understanding of learning power...

...[It] tells the reader about the "Effective Lifelong Learning Inventory" research programme (ELLI) and uses practical examples of how it can work in actual classes to explain its effectiveness. Its value for practitioners working with children with SEN appears to be in the way it challenges them to look at themselves as learners - also how they can support the children they work with to become more effective learners′ - Special Needs Coordinator′s File

′This is not a gimmicky approach... The approach here fosters deeper understanding for both the teacher and learner of exactly what the process involves... It contains much to interest schoolteachers, senior managers and those involved with learners of any age′ - ESCalate

Contains Learning Power flash cards!

What kind of learner are you? How can you become a better learner?

This book puts the findings of the well known Effective Lifelong Learning Inventory (ELLI) research programme into the practical context of the classroom, helping you to find answers to these questions.

The book offers many suggestions for practical ways to improve the learning power of all the children in your class. It looks at:

" learning power - what it is and how it can be achieved

" creating the right classroom environment for powerful learning

" how learning power works in the primary and secondary school classroom

" how animal metaphors can be used with children to explain concepts.

This is an exciting read for anyone interested in how children learn, and how we can help them to learn more effectively. It fits in very well with the debate around such concepts as accelerated learning, thinking skills and learning styles.
