Memorable Teaching

Memorable Teaching : Leveraging memory to build deep and durable learning in the classroom

"I doubt you'll find an education book with more useful insights per minute of reading time." Dylan Wiliam, Emeritus Professor of Educational Assessment at UCL

This book is for any teacher or school leader who's interested in understanding how learning works, and how to optimise their teaching to make it happen. It stitches together the best available evidence from cognitive science and educational research into a coherent set of actionable principles that you can use to improve your impact in the classroom.

Memorable Teaching has been carefully constructed to be a highly efficient reading experience. It is short, sparse and you should be able to read it in about an hour.

Memorable Teaching is the second instalment in the High Impact Teaching series.
