Product description

Review

Learning is essential and life-long. Yet as these authors argue convincingly, people often use exactly the wrong strategies and don't appreciate the ones that work. We've learned a lot in the last decade about applying cognitive science to real-world learning, and this book combines everyday examples with clear explanations of the research. It's easy to readaand should be easy to learn from, too!Daniel L. Schacter, author of The Seven Sins of MemoryThis is a quite remarkable book. It describes important research findings with startling implications for how we can improve our own learning, teaching, and coaching. Even more, it shows us how more positive attitudes toward our own abilities a and the willingness to tackle the hard stuff a enables us to achieve our goals. The compelling stories bring the ideas out of the lab and into the real world.Robert Bjork, University of California, Los AngelesIf I could, I would assign all professors charged with teaching undergraduates one book: Make It Stick: The Science of Successful Learninga¦It lays out what we know about the science of learning in clear, accessible prose. Every educator--and parent, and student, and professional--ought to have it on their own personal syllabus.Annie Murphy PaulThe Brilliant blogIf you want to read a lively and engaging book on the science of learning, this is a musta¦Make It Stick benefits greatly from its use of stories about people who have achieved mastery of complex knowledge and skills. Over the course of the book, the authors weave together stories from an array of learners--surgeons, pilots, gardeners, and school and university students--to illustrate their arguments about how successful learning takes placea¦This is a rich and resonant book and a pleasurable read that will leave you pondering the processes through which you, and your students, acquire new knowledge and skills.Hazel ChristieTimes Higher EducationMany educators are interested in making use of recent findings about the human brain and how we learna¦Make It Stick the single best work I have encountered on the subject. Anyone with an interest in teaching or learning will benefit from reading this book, which not only presents thoroughly grounded research but does so in an eminently readable way that is accessible even to students.James M. LangChronicle of Higher EducationAimed primarily at students, parents, and teachers, Make It Stick also offers practical advice for learners of all ages, at all stages of lifea¦With its credible challenge to conventional wisdom, Make It Stick does point the way forward, with a very real prospect of tangible and enduring benefits.Glenn C. AltschulerPsychology Today
