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.
The 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.
