Written in a clear and engaging way, Neuroscience for Teachers avoids the trap of overgeneralisation which is so commonly observed when neuroscience is taken outside of academia. The authors introduce the key neuroscience topics relevant to education and describe in detail the evidence available in order to help teachers reflect on how this may benefit their practice. In addition to expanding their knowledge about the brain and cognition, it will also develop teachers' research literacy and improve their ability to assess neuroscientific findings more critically.
I believe Neuroscience for Teachers may become a key reference for teachers desiring to better understand and apply neuroscience to their practice.
