ASK How to Teach Learning to Learn in the Secondary School

Why do teachers get frustrated by their efforts to teach students new ideas and new skills? Because students lack the ability to learn for themselves and so end up being dependent on their teachers. Villiers High is one of the first secondary schools in the country to have sought to tackle this by introducing a fully developed curriculum designed so that students can learn how to learn. The results have been remarkable, with year on year improvements in public examination results and an increased hunger to learn on the part of students. The result is "ASK: How to teach learning to Learn", a serious exploration of the new science of learning. Full of tried and tested teaching and learning strategies, this book will transform the way any teacher sees their subject. All of the lesson ideas detailed in this book are easily applied to any curriculum subject and if used across different subjects, quickly become a transferable map which can help students make sense of their learning and progress rapidly at secondary school.

Whatever the subject, science, English, geography, learning - or a combination - after reading this book, teachers will never again think of themselves solely as a teacher of a subject. For they will also be teaching that essential human skill - the capacity to learn.
