Many other learners, in formal education and beyond, might simply find the book an informative and challenging read....

`Eileen Carnell and Caroline Lodge have given us a book with many virtues…. It is thoughtful and thought-provoking, and the many examples and case studies bring the theoretical discussions alive' - Ron Best, Cambridge Journal of Education

`The overall style of the book is highly reader-friendly. The links between ideas are clear, the case studies are by and large helpful, and the bullet pointed practical strategies are substantial enough to give practitioners throughout the key stages new ideas to try. This is an intelligently written book which does much to further the effective learning debate' - Angela Scott, British Journal of Special Education

'This book is highly useful for teacher trainees (pre-service and in-service). School administrators will find it useful to develop a system that will help change focus from teaching to learning. Above all, anyone interested in student learning will find the volume extremely useful' - Sanjaya Mishra, British Journal of Educational Technology
