This book seeks to answer the question, what factors really can make a difference to instruction? A serious consideration of practical knowledge of learning must go beyond the most general principles of the learning process, such as contiguity and reinforcement. Learning results in retained dispositions which have different properties which the author calls capabilities. Their five main varieties are called intellectual skills, cognitive strategies, verbal information, motor skills, and attitudes. The second theme relating to the factors that make a difference to instruction my be identified as the events of learning. The book is addressed to a fairly broad student audience.
