An interesting teaching book.
Pardon the shotgun approach, but it turns out I know a fair few teachers, or people with kids who are or soon will be concerned with their education, and one way or another most of you read this blog or know someone who does. So when my old PhD supervisor tells me about a book about teaching which he thinks is really good, Why Don’t Students Like School by Daniel Willingham, this seemed like a good place to spread the word. Clark's review of the book is here if you'd like to see what he has to say first; I have not read it myself (yet), but his specialty has always been learning theory, and I trust him to know what he's talking about.
