Understanding how we learn : a visual guide

Yana Weinstein (Author), Megan Sumeracki (Author), Oliver Caviglioli (Illustrator)
This accessible guide shows how to integrate effective, research-backed strategies for learning into classroom practice. The book explores exactly what constitutes good evidence for effective learning and teaching strategies, how to make evidence-based judgments instead of relying on intuition, and how to apply findings from cognitive psychology directly to the classroom. Including real-life examples and case studies, FAQs, and a wealth of engaging illustrations to explain complex concepts and emphasize key points, the book is divided into four parts. Evidence-based education and the science of learning; Basics of human cognitive processes; Strategies for effective learning; Tips for students, teachers, and parents. Written by "The Learning Scientists" Drs. Yana Weinstein and Megan Sumeracki and fully illustrated by Oliver Caviglioli, Understanding How We Learn is a rejuvenating and fresh examination of cognitive psychology's application to education. This is an essential read for all teachers and educational practitioners, designed to convey the concepts of research to the reality of a teacher's classroom. -- From back cover
