Product reviews for Learning without Fear

Shirley Clarke, international formative assessment expert
Forget growth mindset mantras and posters -“ instead read this more nuanced, comprehensive exploration of a range of strategies designed to achieve success in early years and primary settings.

Learning without Fear accessibly and practically describes the critical elements of learning without fear, and also delves into pupil self-regulation and the pitfalls of praising the child rather than the process. It is filled with anecdotes and -˜mini stories' -“ case studies of children's typical negative school experiences or thoughts, skilfully turned into success stories -“ that all come to life in the book's colourful, welcoming pages, which also feature plenty of research evidence and the authors' personal classroom experiences.

This delightful publication then culminates in a bank of powerful and easy-to-follow lesson ideas, which -“ together with the rest of the book's content -“ will help educators develop in their learners a growth mindset that will benefit them both in school and beyond.
