A very important book on concept based learning - I would say a 'must read'.

For anyone in education who is deeply concerned of learning methodologies. This book will give a head way to create curriculum, assessments and interviews, that results in meaningful learning.

"Educational value increases when we recognize new meanings and feel the emotion in the process."

Good stuff about fee diagrams and concept maps. Convincing but a tad technical for the layman.

I don't think I'm going to finish this book. I kept getting recommendations about it from other books, but it was a bit to difficult to read for me.
