First released in the Spring of 1999, How People Learn has been expanded to show how the theories and insights from the original book can translate into actions and practice, now making a real connection between classroom activities and learning behavior. This edition includes far-reaching suggestions for research that could increase the impact that classroom teaching has on actual learning. Like the original edition, this book offers exciting new research about the mind and the brain that provides answers to a number of compelling questions. When do infants begin to learn? How do experts learn and how is this different from non-experts? What can teachers and schools do-with curricula, classroom settings, and teaching methods--to help children learn most effectively? New evidence from many branches of science has significantly added to our understanding of what it means to know, from the neural processes that occur during learning to the influence of culture on what people see and absorb. How People Learn examines these findings and their implications for what we teach, how we teach it, and how we assess what our children learn. The book uses exemplary teaching to illustrate how approaches based on what we now know result in in-depth learning. This new knowledge calls into question concepts and practices firmly entrenched in our current education system. Topics include: How learning actually changes the physical structure of the brain. How existing knowledge affects what people notice and how they learn. What the thought processes of experts tell us about how to teach. The amazing learning potential of infants. The relationship of classroom learning and everyday settings of community and workplace. Learning needs and opportunities for teachers. A realistic look at the role of technology in education.

As teacher training has become more school based in recent years, the role of teachers acting as mentors to trainees has become a very important aspect of partnership training schemes jointly planned and implemented by both school and university. Although a number of texts have looked at the more general aspects of mentoring, very little is known about the issues that influence the design of partnership schemes in specific subject areas. This book, however, does just this by addressing these issues with regard to physical education. The issues raised by the highly regarded contributors to this book contribute to the knowledge of, and ongoing debate about, the complex and difficult task of mentoring in physical education. They will also help those who are responsible for the design of partnership schemes to create coherent, meaningful and relevant programmes of teacher preparation based on close collaboration and carefully structured school-based support. Clearly written and based on recent research from the UK, Australia, and the USA, this book is essential reading for primary and secondary PE teacher trainers, for school-based physical education mentors and their students, and for lecturers running mentor training programmes as part of postgraduate course modules.

What attracts good teachers and keeps them in the profession? What makes schools better places for students to learn and for teachers to work? These questions are at the heart of Keeping Good Teachers. To answer them, many of the authors in this book have surveyed fellow educators to find out which practices and policies are most beneficial and practical to implement in schools. The book is divided into five sections: *Part I explores the extent of the teacher shortage and sets the context for studying it. *Part II concentrates on induction, tackling the issue of how new teachers should be introduced to their profession. *Part III looks at the issues of compensation, performance-based pay, career paths, national certification, and other ways to reward educators and make them feel valued. *Part IV describes the role of principals and administrators in sustaining teachers. *Part V discusses the needs and desires of master teachers. Like its predecessor A Better Beginning: Supporting and Mentoring New Teachers (ASCD 1999), Keeping Good Teachers is dedicated to all those who want to make their profession the best it can be by creating the conditions where good teachers can thrive.
