A Beginner’s Guide to Mantle of the Expert

Mantle of the Expert is the name given by Dorothy Heathcote to an approach to teaching she developed while working at Newcastle University in the 1970s. At its heart are techniques of drama and inquiry that involve children in work whose results they know will truly matter to someone other than themselves. But while Mantle of the Expert has proved itself in the classroom and has acquired a passionate following, no one had written the definitive book. Until now. Tim Taylor came to Singular for a level of service and attention to detail that he was unable to find at either big corporate publishers or online self-publishing services. The result: a handsome 256-page paperback that tells new and current practitioners everything they need to know.
