Product description

Review

"This book's greatest strength is definitely its user friendliness. It reads easily and has good illustrations and examples of concepts. Just about every part of the book contains useful information. The Practioner's Corners provide application opportunities. My students love it!" -- Kathleen Kremer, Ph.D., Assistant Professor "How the Brain Learns is both professional and accessible. Of all the texts I have used for courses over the years, this one gets the best reviews from students. They love the diagrams and charts that make the concepts concrete and easier to grasp, they love the pithy quotes summarizing major points along the way. (Many of those quotes have found their way into student final papers and projects in my courses - all appropriately cited too!) I personally love the way the "What Do You Know" quiz at the beginning is carried all the way through with answers revealed and explicitly pointed out as they come up in context. It makes the book more cohesive and adds to the flow of conversation and reflection. My students are always blown away with the information and section on the neuro myths. Many have been taught these myths in their other teacher courses and many lively conversations are triggered by this section. Another strength of the book is the overall progression of topics and natural flow or rhythm to the material, which adds to the comprehension and accessibility. The discussion of action research is especially appreciated as I try to include mini research projects in my courses, and it's great to have the rational and description in the same book as the information about the brain. The Practitioner's Corner, Classroom Connections and thought provoking-questions make the book personal and meaningful for each of my students. " -- Kris Dreifuerst, Graduate Teaching Lecturer, Neurodevelopmental Approach to Teaching
