How People Learn: Brain, Mind, Experience, and School
National Research Council 2000 National Academy Press Washington, D.C.

This summary of educational research stresses that students of all ages 1) come to school with preconceptions about the subjects they are learning that, if not engaged, will interfere with learning, 2) need deep rather than broad knowledge of a subject, and 3) learn differently as novices than they do as intermediate learners becoming experts.
