Product reviews for Powering Up Children

Margaret Carr, Professor of Education, University of Waikato, and co-author of Learning Stories: Constructing Learner Identities in Early Education
Powering Up Children is impressive, practical, and wise - and it's not often you can put those three things together. It picks up Guy Claxton's latest thinking about “learning power” and, with the help of expert practitioner Becky Carlzon, embeds it firmly in the primary school classroom (and it applies just as well to early childhood too). Guy and Becky include a host of practical methods to help children develop their learning muscles, and I especially valued their ideas on how to encourage children to think of themselves as learners by speaking “learnish”.
