Why Don't Students Like School Summary
This book was very interesting. I learned so much about simple things that I can do to help make my lessons and classroom better for all my students. Some of the things that really stood out to me were: we are all naturally curious but not good thinkers; we understand things in the context better because of the things we already know; knowledge of learning styles is not necessary because we think of the content of the lesson to drive the lesson and finally that teaching must be practiced to be improved. This book taught me these and many more things that I will refer to in the future to remind myself of about my students and my daily teaching.
