Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Use the power of neuroscience to develop better students in your class!

How the Brain Learns, Third Edition, the newly revised and updated edition of this powerful and practical bestseller, examines remarkable new research and developments in brain functioning while continuing its successful tradition of translating this information into effective classroom strategies and activities.

In this revised edition, best-selling author David Sousa explores source material on brain research, including basic brain structures, how the brain processes information, memory and retention, and the transfer of knowledge to enhance present and future learning. In addition to critical new research about how the brain acquires language, the updated text includes:

  • An expanded chapter on thinking skills applying the recently revised Bloom's Taxonomy
  • A revised Information Processing Model to reflect new terminology and understanding about memory systems
  • Additional new examples of how emotions influence learning and memory
  • New Practitioner's Corners to assess understanding of major concepts and how these translate into effective classroom strategies
  • Updated bibliography and Internet resources
  • An engaging new 2-color interior design

How the Brain Learns, Third Edition is an indispensable tool for all educators-school administrators and teachers, staff developers, preservice students and faculty, and even parents who want to better understand the way their children process and retain information.
