His book will help teachers improve their practice by explaining how they and their students think and learn.

It reveals-the importance of story, emotion, memory, context, and routine in building knowledge and creating lasting learning experiences. * Nine, easy-to-understand principles with clear applications for the classroom * Includes surprising findings, such as that intelligence is malleable, and that you cannot develop "thinking skills" without facts * How an understanding of the brain's workings can help teachers hone their teaching skills"Mr. Willingham's answers apply just as well outside the classroom.
