Review

"This book is incredibly useful for students, parents, and teachers alike. As a high school teacher, the information provided will only serve to better my classroom and my student's understanding of learning. The content, both word and illustrations, creates an easily accessible text packed with material. I highly recommend Understanding How We Learn. I may order two copies because I'm sure I'll be using and sharing the book often with my fellow teachers." - Blake Harvard, James Clemens High School, USA "Many educators are today advocating for evidence-based education. This book is an excellent source for the current evidence on ways to improve learning, as well as practical tips on how to use the strategies. The authors write for teachers, students, and parents. I highly recommend this book for all three groups." - Henry L. Roediger III, James S. McDonnell Distinguished University Professor of Psychology, Washington University, USA "In Understanding How We Learn Sumeracki and Weinstein urge educators, students and parents to pay less attention to intuition and pay more attention to research. The book then enables them to do that. As a result, they synthesise a huge wealth of research literature on cognitive science into a readable, practical guide that serves as a tool to transform teaching, and hence learning. Laced with anecdotes and examples that make this an essential read, the wealth of academic references mean that this book will be invaluable in transforming your institution, and the educators and students within it, to be more effective. An absolute must-read for all educators, teachers, and students." - Stuart Lock, Executive Principal of Bedford Free School and Director at Northampton Primary Academy Trust, UK "An accessible, fascinating journey through research methods, findings and application. If every teacher across our multi-academy trust could apply these findings (and there's nothing so complicated here that this couldn't be done), the benefits to student learning could be enormous." - Linda Ferris, Schools Week "Understanding how we learn: a visual guide should be recommended to every student, and for that matter their teachers. It draws on scientific research in psychology to explain what works and what doesn't work when it comes to learning and recall."- Terry Freedman, ICT & Computing in Education
