About this item

Become mind-fit for life!

Learning is learnable! Educators can explicitly teach positive learning attitudes and habits of mind. Guy Claxton’s powerful resource will help teachers understand how ‘every lesson, every day’ shapes the way students see themselves as learners. This important work helps us notice ‘what lies beneath’ the surface of our teaching and attend closely to the way we shape dispositions and attitudes. Readers will find:  

approaches focused on building character alongside knowledge acquisition
cognitive, social and neuroscientific supportive evidence
practical illustrations and strategies

Written by a renowned cognitive scientist, this book offers a set of design principles for strengthening students’ learning muscles.
