Make It Stick

The Science of Successful Learning
Written by Collected Authors | Narrated by Qarie Marshall
This Earphones Award winner will convince you that everything you know about learning is wrong! Perfect for anyone striving for self-improvement, this educational read offers techniques that help you take in — and retain — information. “Practical advice for learners of all ages, at all stages of life” (Psychology Today).

PUBLISHER DESCRIPTION

To most of us, learning something “the hard way” implies wasted time and effort. Good teaching, we believe, should be creatively tailored to the different learning styles of students and should use strategies that make learning easier.

Make It Stick turns fashionable ideas like these on their head. Many common study habits and practice routines turn out to be counterproductive. Underlining and highlighting, rereading, cramming, and single-minded repetition of new skills create the illusion of mastery, but gains fade quickly. More complex and learning come from self-testing, introducing certain difficulties in practice, waiting to re-study new material until a little forgetting has set in, and interleaving the practice of one skill or topic with another. Speaking most urgently to students, teachers, trainers, and athletes, Make It Stick will appeal to all those interested in the challenge of lifelong learning and self-improvement.
