Overview

In Making Learning Whole, David Perkins introduces a new, practical, and research-based framework for teaching. Using learning the game of baseball as a metaphor, Perkins illustrates how teaching any subject at any grade level can be made more effective if students are introduced to the "whole game" rather than isolated pieces of a discipline. Filled with real-world examples, Making Learning Whole describes how learning can be organized for deep and lasting impact.
