Making Learning Whole: How Seven Principles of Teaching Can Transform Education

November 23, 2015

This book focuses on how teaching any subject at any level can be made more effective if students are introduced to the whole game, rather than isolated pieces of a discipline. Authored by David Perkins, co-director of Harvard’s Project Zero, who explains how learning academic subjects should be approached like learning baseball or any game. He demonstrates this with seven principles for making learning whole: from making the game worth playing (emphasizing the importance of motivation to sustained learning), to working on the hard parts (the importance of thoughtful practice), to learning how to learn (developing self-managed learners).
