Learning How to Learn
Learning how to learn is an essential preparation for lifelong learning. This book offers a set of in-service resources to help teachers develop new classroom practices informed by sound research. It builds on previous work associated with ‘formative assessment’ or ‘assessment for learning’. However, it adds an important new dimension by taking account of the conditions within schools that are conducive to the promotion, in classrooms, of learning how to learn as an extension of assessment for learning. Among the materials included you will find:
an introductory in-service session
an action planning activity
tools for school development
a network mapping activity
guidance about different ways of using the resources
teachers descriptions of ways they have used of adapted them
references to further information and advice.
In addition, there is a support website and examples of how individual schools have used or adapted these materials to maximize their benefits.
