From the Publisher
Editors Note "Schools for Thought . . . is especially valuable in that it attacks the artificial distinction between process and content, thinking and knowledge, that has so long haunted education." - Teacher Magazine "It has been said that cognitive science? the study of how humans learn - could become to pedagogy what biology is to the practice of medicine. Now, for the first time, we have a clear, accessible summary of the groundbreaking research in this field over the last 30 years and how it translates to the classroom . . . . Schools for Thought includes a host of examples of what this important research means for the teaching of math, science, reading, and writing. There are also sections on testing and motivation." - American Educator Schools for Thought provides a straightforward, general introduction to cognitive research and illustrates its importance for educational change. Using classroom examples, John Bruer shows how applying cognitive research can dramatically improve students' transitions from lower-level rote skills to advanced proficiency in reading, writing, mathematics, and science. A Bradford Book
Editors Note 1 We cannot begin to seriously think about improving our schools until we base classroom practice on what science tells us about teaching and learning. John Bruer's book makes the findings of cognitive research accessible and shows us how its application in the classroom can help children, including those from disadvantaged backgrounds, develop better learning skills. These innovative ideas have garnered several awards and an overwhelming response from teachers across the nation.
