Additional Information: This book focuses on young people as learners and how their learning in schools can be supported. Many teachers will have heard statements similar to this comment by a Year 10 student: It's not that I haven't learnt much. It's just that I don't really understand what I am doing (Harris, Wallace, & Rudduck, 1995: 253). Many young people share this student's lack of understanding about how they learn, how they learn most effectively, what alternatives strategies they could use, what conditions suit them and so forth. The helplessness expressed by the Year 10 pupil is striking. This young person is saying that if they understood more about what they are doing they would learn more effectively. This book argues that helping young people understand more about learning is a key function for teachers, individually or acting collectively and for others who have a role in supporting their learning.
