Publisher Description

In this unabridged audiobook version of his acclaimed book, David Didau reignites the nature versus nurture debate around intelligence and offers research-informed guidance on how teachers can help their students acquire a robust store of knowledge and skills that is both powerful and useful.

David argues that with greater access to culturally accumulated information - taught explicitly within a knowledge-rich curriculum - children are more likely to become cleverer, think more critically and, subsequently, live happier, healthier, and more secure lives. 

He underpins his discussion with an exploration of the evolutionary basis for learning - and also untangles the forms of practice teachers should be engaging their students in to ensure that they are acquiring expertise, not just consolidating mistakes and misconceptions.

This wide-ranging enquiry into psychology, sociology, philosophy, and cognitive science is suitable for teachers, school leaders, policy makers, and anyone involved in education.
