Although there has been a great deal of impassioned debate over the sad state of American education today, surprisingly little attention has been paid to how children actually learn to think But, as David Perkins demonstrates, we cannot solve our problems in this area simply by redistributing power or by asking children to regurgitate facts on a multiple choice exam RathAlthough there has been a great deal of impassioned debate over the sad state of American education today, surprisingly little attention has been paid to how children actually learn to think But, as David Perkins demonstrates, we cannot solve our problems in this area simply by redistributing power or by asking children to regurgitate facts on a multiple choice exam Rather we must ask what kinds of knowledge students typically acquire in school In Smart Schools, Perkins draws on over twenty years of research to reveal the common misguided strategies students use in trying to understand a topic, and then shows teachers and parents what strategies they can use with children to increase real understanding.

Aquest llibre del codirector del HARVARD PROJECT ZERO és una reflexió sobre com fer les classses tenint en compte el que sabem avui (descobriments neurocientífics) sobre com s´aprèn. Partint de la idea de què l'aprenentatge és una conseqüència del pensament centra el procés educatiu en tres estratègies: ensenyar a retenir, a pensar a partir dels continguts i a transferir. Combina la teoria amb les experiències pràctiques (Coalition of Essential Schools, Comer Schools). Està molt be [...]

I did not agree with many of the points in this booki think. It started out okay and by the end i was so confused as to what the Perkins guy was even talking about thatI don't knowI think I disagree! It's not a very practical book.

I wish I had read this book years ago. Provides an overview of most relevant literature in education - related to teaching and learning - while supporting a clear, fundamental effort that still needs to be focused on today.

Great book - provides helpful nomenclature for things many educators know but don't always have a name for. Example: fragile knowledge = something the learner has encountered in the cases room but can't readily access and is likely to quickly forget.

Attemptedd as most educational books that were recommended in grad school before I had experience, I find it dry and boooooring. I know enough now that these books (this book?) seems silly.

A useful class-level curriculum book. A bit redundant and not the best writing, but important, thoughtful, actionable content.

Clearly and thoroughly discusses the challenges of teaching children (but theories are applicable to all) and offers specific steps to follow for effective teaching.
