Review:

This is a stimulating report of practice which has promoted learning skills and coaching to raise achievement. With the new agenda to raise aspirations of lower achievers and disaffected / disruptive students this book has essential ideas for developing and sustaining motivation, understanding group dynamics and managing relationships. I would recommend ASK as a valuable resource within schools and colleges to promote the learning to learn skills of students at all levels. John Morris, JTM Educational Consultants --John Morris, JTM Educational Consultants

A treasure-trove of material. I heartily commend [this] book to you. It is the real work of real teachers in a real school. They have forged an approach to the nation s most pressing education issue that translates the theory and rhetoric into classroom action. You can adopt their template or customise it; you can read this book as a stimulating case study or as a blueprint. Either way, it will enrich your thinking and practice and ultimately bring great benefits to your students. Paul Ginnis, trainer and best selling author of The Teacher s Toolkit --Paul Ginnis, trainer and best selling author of The Teacher s Toolkit

Effective, independent learners which school would not wish for these? ASK provides a compendium of practical, down-to-earth approaches, strategies and materials to developing learning to learn. All schools could learn from this one school s journey. Lyn Bull Independent Education Consultant, G&T Consultant, MFL Consultant --Lyn Bull Independent Education Consultant, G&T Consultant, MFL Consultant
