How people learn: Brain, mind, experience and school
J. Bransford, A.L. Brown, R.R. Cocking 1999 National Academy Press Washington, D.C.
This book from the National Research Council provides information on the differences between expert and novice approaches. How People Learn examines these findings and their implications for what we teach, how we teach it, and how we assess what our children learn. The book uses exemplary teaching to illustrate how approaches based on what we now know result in in-depth learning. This new knowledge calls into question concepts and practices firmly entrenched in our current education system.
