Accelerated Learning: A User's Guide
By Alistair Smith, Mark Lovatt, Derek Wise

Renowned author and presenter Alistair Smith has joined forces with educators Mark Lovatt and Derek Wise to provide a stunningly useful guide that cuts to the core of learning.

This book provides an easily accessible summary of what accelerated learning methods can offer and achieve.

 Organized into four chapters, this excellent volume:

·   gives the background to the accelerated learning approach,

·   describes the use of the Accelerated Learning Cycle,

·   gives advice on enhancing memory,

·   summarizes good ideas to improve learning, and provides useful resources

Some of the learning principles in this book include:

· Meaningful learning involves risk; good teachers help learners negotiate risk

· Anxiety paralyzes performance; good teachers provide structured challenge

· Learning is about seeking and securing connections; good teachers take lots of opportunities to make connections

Accelerating Learning: A User's Guide combines the art of teaching with the science of learning, and provides a tried-and-tested model with theoretical underpinnings. You'll also have more than 200 ideas and activities that provide realistic solutions for teachers.

The authors have expertly synthesized educational best practice into a concise, readable 'how-to' set of teaching behaviors that place learner thinking at the core of instruction. They capably reached their goal of combining the art of teaching with the science of learning--- Barbara K. Given, Ph.D., Director, Adolescent and Adult Learning Research Center, Krasnow Institute for Advanced Studies
