How Children Learn
Monday, August 25, 2014
By Linda Pound (Practical Pre-School, £19.99)
The book is an introduction to the pioneers of educational theory - from Comenius, the father of modern education, to Freud, Froebel, Piaget, Vygotsky and Malaguzzi. A summary of the key ideas and writings from each, as well as information about his or her life and important dates are set out with concepts explained in a glossary at the end of the relevant sections.
This update to the 2005 bestseller has renewed emphasis on the practice of educational theory and criticisms of each theory. The book provides a clear insight into how ideas about children's learning have developed over the past four centuries.
