Doug Lemov, Erica Woolway and Katie Yezzi
In this book teaching experts Lemov, Yezzi and Woolway demonstrate how to improve at any task by engineering how we practice. The authors set out to debunk some myths about the nature of practice and mastery of skills, and to revolutionise the way readers approach and think about practice.
They suggest that practice should be intelligent, disciplined, and deliberate. Drawing from evidence and the examples of people who are at the top of their profession, the authors identify 42 clear rules that support effective practice, that deliver longer term benefits.
Their techniques include 'encoding success' through engineering practice so the right actions become embedded in mental circuitry and become habitual; learning how to automate skills so you’ll use them before you consciously decide to; and learning how to isolate skills by naming each technique you’ve identified as an important building block to peak performance.
In listing research, EdCentral makes no judgment or recommendation as to its quality, validity or methodology and none should be inferred. Through peer ratings left by education practitioners, EdCentral’s aim is to support the development of a repository of shared knowledge and experience.
