Guy Claxton challenges the traditional approaches to learning that exist in so many of our schools and presents a compelling and practical strategy to foster authentic thinking and learning for all. The Learning Power Approach is rooted in the belief that we must move beyond systems that categorise and judge people merely on their ability to do well in exams and tests - or learning that promotes the myth of the “one right answer” - to cultures that focus on “the cultivation of the confidence and capacity to be a good learner”. Claxton identifies and describes the diverse variety of strengths essential to successful learning and presents practical approaches to make these a priority.
This is a great book. It is a must-read for those who understand the uniqueness of abilities in all of their students and would like to set in play a culture of learning that makes this flourish - a culture of learning that is inclusive and personal.
