    Epub Free to Learn ePUB ð Free to MOBI :↠ ☆ rightmark.co free book, learn free, Free to download, Free to Learn eBookIf I had to summarize the first part of Peter Gray’s book in a few words it would be something like the following “Traditional schools are too authoritarian Traditional education stifles children’s curiosity and desire to learn by telling them what to study and by teaching them to do as they are told” This part of the book where he presents his understanding of the historical and psychological causes and human impact of traditional schooling whether public or private is extraordinarily compelling and has forever changed my perspective on traditional education Having read Dr Gray’s book I will no longer take for granted that the use of a standard curriculum for everyone is a good idea and I am thoroughly convinced that extinguishing a person’s natural desire to learn is at the root of many if not every unmotivated student Whatever else we do we must keep our children – and ourselves – wanting to learn which is easy Dr Gray

    Epub Free to Learn ePUB ð Free to MOBI :↠ ☆ rightmark.co free book, learn free, Free to download, Free to Learn eBookI bought this book as I was interested in how children learned outwith the confines and sometimes the restrictions of traditional schooling While this book does discuss this at great length and has some incredibly useful and insightful sections on the whole it is too long often repetitive and too 'preachy' for my liking Personally I think if anyone is interested in knowing about child learning and alternative ways to teach children books by John Holt are far superior They are concise less like someone is lecturing you and are less rambling than this book
