If you are about to take on another journey in a learning institution, we encourage you to give these amazing books a thorough read. We hope you get inspired by them, just like thousands of people in our community.
The Adult Learner
Malcolm S Knowles, Elwood F Holton III, and Richard A Swanson
The big question you need to ask before reading this book, “Is it ever too late to study?” We’ve heard that question millions of times from so many adults that approached us as they were reluctant to study at their age.
The answer is always no. No matter your age, education is always there to help you become better in so many ways. That is exactly what this book is all about. It empowers adults to push through with their educational endeavours to expand their knowledge and acquire new skills.
This is the best book to read if you have a lot of doubts and insecurities for starting education as an adult.
The Smartest Kids in the World
This book is more on the analytical slide as it provides insights into the different education systems in the USA. We are in Canada, but this book provides timeless information on how students, parents, educators, school boards, administrators, and anyone involved perceive education today and fortify it for tomorrow.
In here, you will also see a glimpse of the big differences between education systems among different countries. You’ll find out how some countries managed to provide next-level education that resulted in the “smartest kids in the world.”
Learning in Adulthood: A Comprehensive Guide
Sharan B Merriam, Rosemary S Caffarella, and Lisa M Baumgartner
Another great book for adult learners. In here, you will find more value on what adult learning is and what it means to today’s society. Back in the past, adult learning was unfortunately stigmatized by society as something mediocre or subpar.
Not today, this book gives you the social context that adults are engaged within their campaign to learn.
We highly recommend these books to everyone.
