It is very clear that neuroscience must be relevant to all involved in teaching: understanding how we learn is fundamental to effective practice. To this end the authors' clear emphasis on evidence-based approaches is highly commendable in recognising the importance of taking proper evidence seriously when seeking to understand what really works in the teaching and learning process. Neuroscience for Teachers is centred on that approach and enables any teacher to access the fundamentals of neuroscience easily. All explanations are clear and simple and do not assume a level of knowledge on the topic that would otherwise make it inaccessible.
I would certainly recommend Neuroscience for Teachers as a really useful book that would greatly benefit all teachers - at any stage of their career - who have an interest in neuroscience and its importance to teaching. It seems especially relevant to anyone who is training to teach, and it is hard to imagine why any trainee would not find this evidence-based, practical and interesting book highly relevant to their teacher training programme. Reading it would be a very good use of some of their scarce time.
