Description: Why Don't Students Like School? is written by an esteemed cognitive psychologist who has conducted basic research on brain function, but who also understands the daily challenges faced by classroom teachers. The book draws its themes from the most frequently asked questions in his "Ask the Cognitive Scientist" column in the American Educator, such as - How can I teach students the skills they need when standardized testing just requires facts? Why do students remembers everything on TV, but forget everything I say? How should I adjust my teaching for different learning styles? And, more. Why Don't Students Like School? will help teachers improve their practice by explaining how they and their students think and learn. It will be a valuable resource for both veteran and novice teachers, teachers-in-training, and for the principals, administrators, and staff development professionals who work with them.
