Deliberate Practice: What does it mean for mastery of writing skills?
18 February 2014 - 18 February 2014
“Deliberate practice is a very special form of activity that differs from mere experience and mindless drill… Unlike playful engagement with peers, deliberate practice is not inherently enjoyable.
