This text has its roots in the report How People Learn: Brain, Mind, Experience and School (National Research Council, 1999, National Academy Press), which reviewed research on human learning. Twenty-two academics and researchers from the U.S., Canada, and England explain how the principles and findings on learning can be used to guide the teaching of a set of topics that commonly appear in the K-12 curriculum. The text explores each of three subject areas—history, mathematics, and science—at three levels: elementary, middle, and high school. The authors provide detailed explanations of how they developed successful curricula and teaching approaches, with strategies that serve as models for curriculum development and classroom instruction. For teachers, administrators, curriculum designers, teacher educators, and parents. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
