Book #27: Make it Stick: The Science of Successful Learning, Peter C Brown, Henry L Reedier III and Mark McDaniel
We are often told that the key to learning is repetition and re-reading. However the authors of this book challenge this assertion. They argue that mere repetition puts the learner in a position of false security without exposing gaps in knowledge. They argue for frequent testing, delayed recall, subject interleaving and more. They show with scientific literature how learning is most effective. It is a fascinating read for the teacher and student alike.
