Make learning more meaningful by teaching the "whole game"David Perkins, a noted authority on teaching and learning and co-director of Harvard's Project Zero, introduces a practical and research-based framework for teaching. He describes how teaching any subject at any level can be made more effective if students are introduced to the "whole game," rather than isolated pieces of a discipline. Perkins explains how learning academic subjects should be approached like learning baseball or any game, and he demonstrates this with seven principles for making learning whole: from making the game worth playing (emphasizing the importance of motivation to sustained learning), to working on the hard parts (the importance of thoughtful practice), to learning how to learn (developing self-managed learners).Vividly explains how to organize learning in ways that allow people to do important things with what they knowOffers guidelines for transforming education to prepare our youth for success in a rapidly changing worldFilled with real-world, illustrative examples of the seven principlesAt the end of each chapter, Perkins includes "Wonders of Learning," a summary of the key ideas....

    David Perkins lays out a comprehensive framework for learning theory wrapped around the metaphor of "playing the whole game." Drawing upon research across the range of education, psychology, and learning theories, Perkins makes the convincing argument that to learn anything deeply people need to engage in seven core principles. Using the "whole game" metaphor, the seven principles are: 1. Play the Whole Game (engage in an authentic full version of the content or skills that you want to learn), 2. Make the Game Worth Playing (find what will motivate you to learn), 3. Work on the Hard Parts (focus on the parts of what you are learning that are difficult with deliberate practice), 4. Play Out of Town (be mindful of how you will transfer the learning to different contexts), 5. Uncover the Hidden Game (learn the underlying rules, strategies, and processes of the topic), 6. Learn from the Team (utilize the social context of the learning environment to construct understanding), and 7. Learn the Game of Learning (be metacognitive about the learning processes).This is a powerful synopsis of how to structure learning experiences and should be read by everyone interested in education.
