Review: Brain-Based Learning: The New Science of Teaching & Training

User Review  - Goodreads

Some of it is common sense, like how plants help you learn, or that just because you don't learn visually doesn't mean you are not smart, or that plants help a learning environment. Not easy to read straight through. More of a reference book, I think. Read full review
