Summary This book describes how an ordinary high school set about incorporating accelerated learning into its teaching practices and policies.

Head of Science, Mark Lovatt, provides a micro view, looking at ways to use accelerated learning in the classroom. Their experiences provide useful reading for any school wishing to improve the learning quality of its students. Several case studies are included to show how accelerated learning techniques can be applied to different subjects
