Summer Reading (or Listening!) for Educators

Summer Reading

As I teach my summer class and prepare for Fall semester, I’ll be incorporating lessons from these books:

The TL;DR: Students are trying to learn by highlighting, re-reading, and trying to memorize diagrams and equations the way one would memorize hieroglyphics. This isn’t a particularly good strategy for long-run retention, and while we can try to jawbone students into having better study skills we rarely if ever actually set things up so that students have the tools and the incentives to study well.

I listened to all these with Audible. You can subscribe to Audible here.
