#100wordbookreview Why Don’t Students Like School by Daniel T Willingham

Willingham takes the reader through a logical and robust guide to the way students learn by sharing the most up to date research on cognitive psychology.

Explaining with great clarity commonly held beliefs on how learning works, he dispels myths and fallacies through interactive examples and fluid storytelling.

Each section summarises key concepts and offers ways in which we as educators can apply cognitive psychology in our classrooms.

In addition Willingham offers recommend reading at the end of each section in both more and less technical texts for accessibility.

I unreservedly recommend this accessible text on the psychology of learning.
