Explaining for understanding

WithRuth Powley

Drawing extensively from a wide range of educational writers and research, Chapter 5 outlines strategies for effective and efficient explanation. It explains the importance of ‘sticky’ explanations and how explanation can be worked most effectively into the ‘learning to learned’ process. As with all the practical chapters of the book, it also contains a handy list of questions for the reflective practitioner to ask about their explanation, and strategies for time saving explanation.
