How to Teach Children to Learn
Teaching Children How to Learn, by Gail Ellis & Nayr Ibrahim
A book offering Primary School language teachers a new and practical methodology based on the importance, now universally recognised in curricula around the world, of teaching children how to learn. Much like the books we make reference to about teaching higher order thinking skills and "Fat Questions", we need to support and build awareness of what learning actually is. In many ways, these skills need to be addressed with adults too.
You'll have met these authors in our TEYL course, and we can confirm, they are passionate about how to teach "learning to learn", looking at how we can create the optimum conditions for children to reach their full potential as enthusiastic and motivated language learners. Not just theory, the book offers practical activities, photocopiable resources, models for teachers, interactive teacher development activities, keys and model answers.
