What can teachers and schools do -- with curricula, classroom settings, and teaching methods -- to help children learn most effectively? New evidence from many branches of science has significantly added to our understanding of what it means to know, from the neural processes that occur during learning to the influence of culture on what people see and absorb. This book examines these findings and their implications for what we teach, how we teach it, and how we assess what our children learn.
