#100wordbookreview Challenging Learning by James Nottingham

This book breaks down the five factors of excellent lessons; Feedback, Application, Challenge, Thinking and Self-Esteem.

Each section is a detailed masterclass in how to develop these in your own classroom as well as explaining the purpose behind each.

As well as this it contains ‘The Pit’ model of learning and the most impressive work on questioning I have ever read.

Whereas Hattie is the master of the science of learning Nottingham is a master craftsman in the art of classroom practice and shares his secrets in this book. Excellently written, clearly expressed, full of hints and tips; essential reading.
