Understanding the Learner's Perspective
A book by Steve Chinn is welcomed and a real pleasure to read but it also makes us feel uneasy when there is still so much to do. His wealth of experience relating to maths in schools cannot be surpassed globally. His insight and perspectives in this book make it a 'go to' book, I believe this is not only for teachers of maths ( and parents) but also for any educator who wants to gain a deeper understanding of how we need to take a learner's perspectives. While it is focused on maths, we can also learn about the emotions that are evoked when it is harder for learners to engage in the subject. This is a reflective book honed from extensive experience and practice but it also remains a really practical book.
