Make learning more meaningful by teaching the "whole game"David Perkins, a noted authority on teaching and learning and codirector of Harvard's Project Zero, introduces a new, practical, and research-based framework for teaching. He describes how teaching any subject at any level can be made more effective if students are introduced to the "whole game," rather than isolated pieces of a discipline. Using real-world examples, Perkins explains how learning academic subjects should be approached like learning baseball-or any game, and he demonstrates this with seven principles for making learning whole: from making the game worth playing (emphasizing the importance of motivation to sustained learning), to working on the hard parts (the importance of thoughtful practice), to learning how to learn (developing self-managed learners).

D.N. Perkins is Director of Harvard Project Zero, Senior Research Associate, and Lecturer On Education, Harvard Graduate School of Education.
