What Learning Looks Like: Mediated Learning in Theory and Practice, K-6
Feuerstein, Reuven; Lewin-Benham, Ann
Teachers College Press
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 analyzing 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 groundbreaking work in accessible language with copious examples of practice. With this volume, educators and administrators will have a reliable and practical way to understand the place of mediated learning in today's schools. Book features include step-by-step guidance for diverse teaching situations; examples from museum exhibits and exemplars of practice; useful teaching illustrations; a list of cognitive functions that can impair learning; and advice for parents of children with learning challenges.
