#100wordbookreview The Hidden Lives of Learners by Graham Nuthall

This book contains the culmination of a life spent researching the nuances of learning and learner interactions.

It’s incredibly accessible for a book sharing high level research and is explicit in its explanations of key findings.

The book challenges set beliefs about prior knowledge, construction of knowledge and the importance of classroom dialogue. It also broaches minutia concepts such as where to place key individuals in lessons and why you need to develop dialogue which enhances learning in the classroom.

I recommend this to anyone wanting to increase their understanding of how students learn and the role of classroom dialogue.
