Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

`Although aimed primarily at the American market, this book′s focus on improving teaching and learning means that it has much to offer UK education practitioners′ - Alite

David A Sousa′s practical and powerful bestseller on brain research and education enters the 21st century with a valuable new edition, incorporating the previously published main text, the companion learning manual, and the latest discoveries in neuroscience and learning.

How the Brain Learns has always focused on the information that can help teachers turn research on brain function into practical activities and lessons. The Second Edition still includes basic brain facts that can help students learn, insights on how the brain processes information, and tips on maximizing retention using `down time′.
