MEDIA REVIEWS
Accessible and thorough overview of the key theorists important to all learning about education at this time. Important and game-changing educational thinkers such as Carol Dweck are critically explored, and their ideas illustrated with classroom applications. The link with other theorists is a gift to the reader - connections made that contextualise the educational thinkers.
