Description

The way we are taught is rigidly divided into subjects that were invented hundreds of years ago. We don’t have to think of life, knowledge and culture in that way. When we go to a museum, a castle, a beach or garden centre, we don’t have to think: ‘Is this history or geography?’ ‘Is this foreign languages or maths?’ The way we’ve been taught excludes or limits all sorts of practical ways of finding out about ideas, knowledge and culture—anything from cooking to fixing cisterns, from dance to model-making, from collecting leaves to playing ‘Who am I?’ Learning should be much more fun, this book explores how you can use everything around you to learn more—and how enjoyable and satisfying it can be.’ Packed with games, stories and memorable information, Good ideas will show every anxious parent and bored child out there that the best kind of education really does start at home—and how exactly to do it.
