Summary

Relearning to Teach is a pragmatic book that challenges the seemingly complex teaching profession and the various initiatives, strategies and ideas that are regularly suggested. Using the knowledge he has accumulated over his career, David Fawcett explores how teaching methods are used without a clear understanding of why, which leads to ineffective teaching that is believed to work – but ultimately doesn’t. Following his breakthrough journey, Fawcett tackles myths head on, shares the latest research and explains how this will look translated to a classroom environment.

Examining key principles from the perspective of a teacher, Relearning to Teach provides a comprehensive overview of the cutting edge research and questions that should be raised such as:

  • Is lesson planning just a box ticking exercise?
  • Why do students remember in lessons, but forget in tests?
  • Is asking more questions beneficial?
  • Is feedback actually worth it?

 

Going back to the drawing board and breaking down teaching into various components, David Fawcett has made the complex, simple again. Relearning to Teach is a must read for all teachers looking to pinpoint the why of teaching methods and to gain an understanding of the reasons why various pedagogies are used within the classroom.
