Make It Stick

In the midst of an era of education filled with reforms which are based primarily on money and polarized politics, Make It Stick is a welcome relief.  This new release builds on the work of others (Dweck, Kahneman, etc.) to delineate a clear, scientific approach to making teaching and learning more effective than ever before. 

Make-it-stickThe practices it supports — such as interspersing the retrieval of information over a period of time, forcing students to try to answer a problem before teaching it to them, using mnemonics — are all free to implement, and they work no matter whether you’re teaching to the Common Core or not, for any age level, and in any setting.

I highly recommend this book to all K-12 teachers and administrators.

  1. Hi I’m Alex from the University of South Alabama and I am in EDM 310. Thank you for sharing this book. As a future teacher, I appreciate people who believe in mneumonics and answering questions before being taught. I have every intention of actually teaching to help my students learn, while maintaining the standards for the school system.

  3. Hi,
    My name is Lindsey Donald and I am in EDM310 at the University of South Alabama. I am currently studying to become an elementary education teacher. Thanks for sharing this book! As a future educator I am always looking for things to help with my future outside of me being in the classroom. It sounds like a great, interesting read.
