How can schools better rise to the challenge of preparing young people for complex and rapidly changing world? How can educators respond to students' calls for help when they say school is irrelevant to them and they feel disconnected from their teachers and peers? The knowledge base that psychologists have amassed about learning offers valuable but often-neglected insights into what is needed in today's classrooms. The contributors to this volume argue that schools need to provide not only standards-based education but also learner-centred education that respects and accommodates each student's unique ways of learning and knowing. "How Students Learn: Reforming Schools Through Learner-Centred Education" assembles the writings of noted leaders in the psychological and educational community. Together they examine research on how students learn and offer a variety of perspectives on learner-centred classroom teaching, assessment systems, teacher education and policy implications. This book should be of interest to educational psychologists, educators and policy makers.
