Synopses & Reviews

Please note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.

Publisher Comments:

The book explores the importance of balancing students' knowledge of historical fact against their understanding of concepts, such as change and cause, and their skills in assessing historical accounts. It discusses how to build straightforward science experiments into true understanding of scientific principles. And, it shows how to overcome the difficulties in teaching math to generate real insight and reasoning in math students. It also features illustrated suggestions for classroom activities. "How Students Learn" offers a highly useful blend of principle and practice. It will be important not only to teachers, administrators, curriculum designers, and teacher educators, but also to parents and the larger community concerned about children's education.

Book News Annotation:

This text has its roots in the report How People Learn: Brain, Mind, Experience and School (National Research Council, 1999, National Academy Press), which reviewed research on human learning. Twenty-two academics and researchers from the U.S., Canada, and England explain how the principles and findings on learning can be used to guide the teaching of a set of topics that commonly appear in the K-12 curriculum. The text explores each of three subject areas--history, mathematics, and science--at three levels: elementary, middle, and high school. The authors provide detailed explanations of how they developed successful curricula and teaching approaches, with strategies that serve as models for curriculum development and classroom instruction. For teachers, administrators, curriculum designers, teacher educators, and parents.
