About “Urban Myths about Learning and Education”:

"...provides useful summaries of a wide array of issues that the authors believe are myths."--PsycCRITIQUES, Urban Myths About Learning and Education

"A marvelous compendium of plausible-sounding ideas about education that have seeped into popular culture, but have little or no scientific support. Carefully documented yet a pleasure to read, this book should be required reading in all teacher training programs." -Daniel T. Willingham, Professor, University of Virginia

"Urban myths about learning and education" by De Bruyckere, Kirschner & Hulshof is a great summary of recent research” Dylan William, Emeritus Professor of Educational Assessment, UCL
