Product reviews for Neuroscience for Teachers

Martin Westwell, Director, Flinders Centre for Science Education in the 21st Century
The marriage of neuroscience and education is a partnership that is full of potential to improve young people's learning and development outcomes. Drawing upon their experience of collaborating with educators, Churches, Dommett and Devonshire have produced a book that combines the very latest research with useful rules of thumb for teachers and provides examples of how these ideas might be converted into classroom practice.

Neuroscience for Teachers unfolds in such a way that newcomers can stay on the path with just the core ideas, while readers with more experience in neuroscience and education can take side roads and explore the research in more detail. The authors also help teachers avoid pitfalls by pointing out the common and newly emerging misinterpretations and -˜neuromyths' that readers might encounter elsewhere.

I am sure that all educators will find some ideas in this book that are affirming, some that are challenging, and others that will inspire creative twists on their existing practice.
