What kind of learner are you? How can you become a better learner? "Learning Power" puts the findings of the well-known Effective Lifelong Learning Inventory (ELLI) research programme into the practical context of the classroom, helping you to find answers to these questions. "Learning Power" offers lots of suggestions for practical ways to improve the learning power of all the children in your class. It looks at: learning power - what it is and how it can be achieved; creating the right classroom environment for powerful learning; how learning power works in the primary and secondary school classroom; and how animal metaphors can be used with children to explain concepts. This is an exciting read for anyone interested in how children learn, and how we can help them to learn more effectively. It fits in very well with the debate around such concepts as accelerated learning, thinking skills, and learning styles.
