We are delighted to announce the launch of this third book in the Pedagogy for a Changing World series, Zest for Learning examines how schools can enrich their pupils’ learning both within and beyond school. This could be encouraged through, for example, greater engagement with sports and the arts, by collaborating with external bodies – such as the Scouts and Guides, or the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award scheme – or with libraries, museums, faith groups and environmental associations. Zest for Learning connects the co-curriculum with the formal curriculum, building both theoretical and practical confidence in the kinds of pedagogies which work well. Bill and Ellen have also infused the book with a range of ideas for getting pupils to love learning so much that they will be able to learn whatever they want to throughout their lives.
