What makes this book different?
The Learning Pit®, written by its creator, James Nottingham, shows you how to create a culture of challenge, curiosity, reflection and resilience. This book provides teachers and parents with a quick guide to effectively engage learners and support them in creating new and deeper meaning.
As Arthur Schopenhauer once said, “Buying books would be a good thing if one could also buy the time to read them in: but as a rule the purchase of books is mistaken for the appropriation of their contents.” With that in mind, The Learning Pit has several features to help navigate the book, including:
- A step by step guide to understand the Learning Pit
- Examples and support for utilizing the Learning Pit to explore concepts across the curriculum
- Descriptions and examples of how to use Learning Pit tools to construct meaning
Suitable for teachers, leaders and support staff working with students between the ages of 7-19. For a more in depth study of The Learning Pit and how it can impact learning, you can read The Learning Challenge by James Nottingham (2017).
