  1. What Learning Looks Like: Mediated Learning in Theory and Practice, K-6

    In this unique collaboration, the authors bring to life the theory of mediated learning. Through numerous examples and scenarios from classrooms and museums, they show how mediated learning helps children to become more effective learners. Readers learn the steps in the process, including analysing the child's problem, teaching the child to focus on the difficulty and using the techniques of mediated learning to enable the child to overcome the learning challenge. This is the first book to present Feuerstein's ground-breaking work in accessible language with copious examples of practice.
