Hare brain, tortoise mind : why intelligence increases when you think less by Guy Claxton( Book )
24 editions published between 1997 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 1,149 libraries worldwide
"In Hare Brain, Tortoise Mind, psychologist Guy Claxton makes an appeal to be less analytical and let our creativity have free rein. He argues compellingly that the mind works best when we trust our unconscious, or "undermind"--A cool, intelligent resource that needs only time and receptivity to function. Claxton also pushes for a reevaluation of society's obsession with results-oriented thinking and problem-solving under pressure." "Packed with interesting anecdotes, a dozen puzzles to test your reasoning, and the latest related research, Hare Brain, Tortoise Mind is an uplifting, stimulating read that focuses on a new kind of well-being, cognition, and problem-solving."--Jacket

The wayward mind : an intimate history of the unconscious by Guy Claxton( Book )
11 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 616 libraries worldwide
"This book charts history's many different ways of explaining the unconscious mind, from ancient descriptions of the 'underworld' to theories of contemporary neuroscience. But whatever metaphors the story-telling impulse attaches to the phenomena of the unconscious, it is not really a single entity, but a jumbled collection of notions in urgent need of untangling. Guy Claxton's book does just this, taking in intellectual and cultural history, literature and spirituality, from the myths and beliefs of ancient Egypt and Homer's Greece to modern Polynesia."--BOOK JACKET

The intuitive practitioner : on the value of not always knowing what one is doing ( Book )
14 editions published between 2000 and 2004 in English and held by 331 libraries worldwide
"Much of the time, experienced professionals in both education and other fields cannot explain what they are doing, or tell you what they know; and students cannot articulate their learning. Yet professional development and practice are often discussed as if conscious understanding and deliberation are of the essence. The Intuitive Practitioner tackles this apparent paradox head on, and explores the dynamic relationship between reason and intuition in the context of professional practice. Focusing mainly on the professional world of the teacher, but with illustrative discussions of medical and business practice, the contributors delicately unpick the vexed and neglected nature of intuition, and demonstrate the vital role it plays in the development of professional judgement and expertise."--Jacket

The little ed book by Guy Claxton( Book )
9 editions published between 1978 and 2012 in English and held by 274 libraries worldwide
Writing principally for teachers-in-training and for new teachers, Guy Claxton offers a fresh approach to what is often a stuffy and polemical area. New teachers today are being bombarded from all sides with advice, prescriptions and demands about what they ought to be, and about personal and professional standards they ought to attain. The person they are gets to feel more and more ignored, unvalued and inadequate. The message of The Little Ed Book is that the answers to all the questions a teacher must confront - both practical and ideological - are already within him or her, and

Liberating the learner : lessons for professional development in education ( Book )
7 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 210 libraries worldwide
The quality of children's learning in school is dependent on the style of a teacher's approach and the learning environment he or she creates. This, in turn, is a reflection of teachers' own beliefs, anxieties and enthusiasms about learning, often gained through their own educational experiences. This edited volume provides a new framework for exploring teachers' views on a whole range of professional issues, such as the nature of teaching and learning, the needs of students, and their own abilities as learners. Within this is presented a variety of case studies which illustrate how teachers' views impact upon students' learning. The conclusions drawn from this study can be used in a practical way to assist teachers' professional development throughout their career. All teacher trainers and mentors who take seriously their role of helping children to be resourceful, resilient and reflective learners will find this book of valuable assistance
