FREE! Learning in Depth by Kieran Egan

cover Learning in Depth by Kieran Egan
The University of Chicago is offering for free this month, an ebook copy of Learning in Depth: a Simple Innovation That Can Transform Schooling by Kieran Egan. Dr. Egan is a professor of education theory at Simon Fraser University.

Egan argues that the broad, general curriculum that is the basis of traditional elementary and secondary school education misses a vital fact about knowledge: that real knowledge of a subject is knowledge in depth. In Learning in Depth he outlines an ambitious yet practical plan to incorporate deep knowledge into basic education. Get your copy here.




Happy reading,

Angela

  2. This seems to go along with the Common Core Standards and the belief that deeper learning is best. I will have to check this out. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Mmmh, I learned about the Chicago free e-books from your blog way back and signed up for their fabulous monthly newsletter. I just realised I never received one this month. Strange. Going to download this before the month expires!
