Urban Myths about Learning and Education

Are boys better in math than girls? Do we really only use 10% of our brains? Urban Myths about Learning and Education debunks the most common myths in education and learning and gives a concise overview of the proof behind the reality. Along the way, the authors discuss why these myths are so entrenched in the public consciousness and what can be done to retrain parents, teachers, policy makers, and the public to know better. This well-researched yet concise and light-hearted book discusses myths regarding what we learn, how we learn it, how we retain it, how the brain works, myths about education and technology, and myths relating to educational policy.

The Ingredients for Great Teaching

ISBN: 978-1526423399

Teaching would be easy if there were clear recipes you could follow every time. The Ingredients for Great Teaching explains why this is impossible and why a one-size-fits-all approach doesn’t work. Instead of recipes, this book examines the basic ingredients of teaching and learning so you can use them wisely in your own classroom in order to become a better and more effective teacher. Taking an approach that is both evidence-based and practical, author Pedro de Bruyckere explores ten crucial aspects of teaching, the research behind them and why they work like they do, combined with everyday classroom examples describing both good and bad practice.
