By the author: “Good teachers should create a learning atmosphere free from judgment. This means disconnecting performance from the student’s self-worth or identity, so that failure and mistakes are not perceived as threatening or humiliating. When a teacher models nonjudgment, a student feels safe to explore, experiment and make purposeful mistakes on their learning journey.”
As a retired educator, I am quite familiar with the various approaches to teaching explained in How to Teach Kids Anything. And I believe that a knowledge of those approaches is essential for any teacher at any level, whether it be vocational, elementary, secondary, or collegiate. However, a knowledge of those approaches is simply the beginning of learning to teach well. How to teach is best learned by actually teaching, not by simply reading a book about how to teach, as the title suggests.
This book was much deeper and covered more than I had expected. There were many terms I wasn't familiar with which made it a bit difficult to read but I give it 5 stars because I found it fascinating. If teachers utilize this information properly it would make schooling much more productive, and students more effective in life. He covered processes involving 6 domains of cognition, steps, specific kinds of questions to ask students and more.
Two quotes I find quite important: "Genuine and high quality learning is never narrow, isolated or abstract. It's real." "One of the best lessons any teacher can impart on any student is a healthy attitude toward risk and failure."
I, myself, have always been a very curious learner. But now that I am an adult, I've noticed how not everyone learns the same. But the kids, and even adults, who are hungry to learn more and continue to improve themselves are the ones who do much better in life. This book will help more adults be able to teach their kids to be hungry to learn new things.
As an aspiring teacher, this book was very insightful and offered a great view of the different methods and theories behind certain teaching methods. It was definitely was something that I enjoyed reading, and widened my own personal knowledge of the subject. Not only is this useful for an educational setting, but is great background knowledge for anyone who works with kids!
As a parent and homeschool mom I found this book useful. I have two kids whom each learn differently. How we learn isn’t simply academic. It’s how we become successful in any endeavor, physical, careers, relationships etc... If you don’t understand learning you become a stunted adult.
Being a middle and high school tutor I found this book enlightening! It provides you with a multitude of different approaches which is crucial when working with kids because it is as the book puts it, "not a one size fits all." I would recommend this book to anyone that works with kids or are even for working with their own children!
