Learn Active Learning: Take Ownership of Learning Using TRAMEWA Learning Framework is a non-fiction book on education written by Lakshmi Narayani. Narayani compares the current trends in education to filling a bucket and considers that this scores-oriented approach does not impart lasting knowledge to children in most school settings. The TRAMEWA method is an alternative to the traditional approach, which can be used by teachers, parents and students themselves. TRAMEWA is an acronym for the processes Narayani uses to build active learning. Each process is clearly defined and set out in step-by-step fashion. This Learning Framework takes the knowledge presented in the classroom setting and provides a means for students to more fully assimilate it and make it their own. Narayani includes a workbook in the back of the book to help teachers, parents and students adjust to active learning more easily.

Lakshmi Narayani's educational book on learning, Learn Active Learning, offers a unique and intriguing educational program that is quite appealing. Teachers are quickly becoming disillusioned with the current proscribed educational methodology, and many do not last for more than a few years. Narayani's system seems like it would allow teachers to go beyond the 'filling the bucket' approach designed to pass proficiency tests and get both teachers and their students involved in the adventure of learning. The author also shows how parents, elder siblings and other adults can get kids excited and motivated about learning new things. Even pre-school kids can benefit from much of the TRAMEWA program. I'm pretty impressed by it and am planning on trying out this method for myself. Learn Active Learning: Take Ownership of Learning Using TRAMEWA Learning Framework is highly recommended.
