How People Learn: Brain, Mind, Experience, and School: Expanded Edition

This trade book demonstrates the real connection between classroom activities and learning behavior. This edition includes far-reaching suggestions for research that could increase the impact that classroom teaching has on actual learning and offers new research about the mind and the brain that provides answers to a number of compelling questions. What can teachers and schools do-with curricula, classroom settings, and teaching methods to help students learn most effectively? How People Learn examines such questions and their implications for what we teach, how we teach it, and how we assess what our students learn.
