- This handbook encourages you to think that bit differently about how you can engage with your students in helping them to become better learners.
- The ideas grow out of Guy Claxton’s Building Learning Power, offering practical ways for you to work with your class at exploring and expanding their learning capacities.
- However don’t expect an instruction manual with detailed programmes and lists of tricks: there are lists, and classroom examples, and suggestions aplenty, but they aim to prompt and guide you into creating the ideas that will work with your students.
- Enjoy more rewards from your teaching as you coach your students in the processes of their own learning, with the shared knowledge that learning is learnable.
