Overview

Can intelligence be developed? Do teacher expectations shape student learning? How can I make learning 'stick' for my students?

In this thought-provoking, informative book, noted education expert Kathleen Ricards Hopkins provides teachers with a hands-on resource based on the latest research on how we learn. Hopkins offers clear, actionable guidelines for teachers to enable all students to gain both the cognitive competence and confidence needed to succeed academically. Using the metaphor of a skylight-a window leading to infinite possibilities-Hopkins provides down-to-earth techniques teachers can use to help students develop their skills as readers, writers, and mathematicians. Hopkins translates the theoretical ideas of Piaget, Vygotsky, and Feuerstein into practical suggestions for teachers to use with their students. Students will benefit from these principles, and teachers may find their cognitive abilities transformed as well.

As inspirational as it is practical, the book offers creative suggestions that help students build perseverance and diligent work habits. Teaching How to Learn in a What-to-Learn Culture is designed to apply to any and all learners, including students with special needs, and is richly illustrated with stories, activities, and useful examples from across the content areas.
