Teaching reads – Constructionism

There seems to be a constant battle in education between those with what they call a progressive philosophy of teaching and those who advocate for traditional approaches to teaching.

If you have already read John Hattie’s work, you would know that neither camp has a monopoly on wisdom about good teaching. Rather, there are faults and nuggets of insight on both sides.

This book takes a balanced and evidence-based look at constructivism, a philosophy that has been blindly accepted by the majority of educators.

Given the degree to which constructivism underpins so much of what goes on in modern classrooms, it would be remiss of any experienced educator not to know the facts.

The book – Constructivist Instruction: Success Or Failure is the next best read.
