What does 'constructivism' mean? What is the difference between 'reliability' and 'validity'? You ll be surprised at the ease of finding definitive answers to terminology questions like these with The Lingo of Learning. Ideal for the time-pressed science teacher who is ready to learn once and for all what key terms really mean.

Each of the 88 entries from 'anticipatory set' to 'zone of proximal growth' is a concise discussion (300 to 500 words) of education terms and ideas, most within the context of science teaching. The book s chapters cover teaching techniques, learning theories, research concepts, and even the nature of science. Although this is a useful reference for a quick definition, you ll be drawn into reading entire chapters and come away with a deeper understanding. The author's special gift: a friendly writing style, a balanced approach, and a willingness to tackle common misconceptions.

Review:

2004 The Washington Book Publishers Design & Effectiveness Awards --Washington Book Publishers

I found the book to be a good overall resource for general educational terms. I was however hoping for more of a 'scientific' focus from the book. There are only a few chapters actually devoted to science terms. --Reviewed by: Seth B (Oak Park, IL) on July 16, 2008

This book was helpful to me because it gave specific information about different learning models. I knew the basics about them, but the book gave me more detail than I could remember. It is a good reference to have on hand. --Reviewed by: Jody (Camden, SC) on July 16, 2008
