Effective learning in classrooms by Chris Watkins( )

18 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,677 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book addresses the central issue of classrooms, and the issue which is too seldom addressed: learning. We do not mean teaching, we do not mean performance, we do not mean 'work'. This book is really about learning in classrooms, what makes learning effective and how it may be promoted in classrooms." "This book takes the special context of the classroom seriously, not only because of its effects on teachers and pupils, but because classrooms are notorious as contexts which change little. Readers will not be offered yet more tips, but real thinking and evidence based on what we know about how classrooms change. Four major dimensions of promoting effective learning in classrooms are handled in depth." "Throughout the book there are two forms of evidence: evidence from practising teachers in the form of case studies and examples, and evidence from international research in the form of useful ideas and frameworks."--Jacket
