Reading this latest offering from Guy Claxton is a total treat. Rich with practical examples of what teachers and school leaders can do to support our pupils to develop the right mindset for success, The Learning Power Approach is a must-read for all educators who care about ensuring our young people develop the character and resilience to enjoy learning, as well as be great at it.
Not only is Guy's approach rooted in solid research, it resonates with me personally as somebody who has a passionate belief in teachers' dual role of teaching content and then enabling pupils to make sense of and master its key concepts through challenging and thought-provoking follow-up activities. And what's even better, pupils who combine these approaches do better in tests and exams too. What's not to like?
