Praise forWhy Don't Students Like School?
"Just like his Ask the Cognitive Scientist column, Dan Willingham'sbook makes fascinating but complicated research from cognitive science accessible to teachers. It is jam packed with ideas that teachers willfind both intellectually rich and useful in their classroom work." --Randi Weingarten, president, American Federation of Teachers
"This readable, practical book by a distinguished cognitivescientist explains the universal roots of effective teaching and learning.With great wit and authority it practices the principles it preaches!?It isthe best teachers' guide I know of--a classic that belongs in the
book bag of every teacher from preschool to grad school." --E. D. Hirsch, Jr., university professor emeritus, University of Virginia
"Dan Willingham, rare among cognitive scientists for also being awonderful writer, has produced a book about learning in school that readslike a trip through a wild and thrilling new country. For teachers and parents, even students, there are surprises on every page. Did you know, for instance, that our brains are not really made for thinking?" --Jay Mathews, education columnist, The Washington Post
"Educators will love this wonderful book--in clear and compelling language, Willingham shows how the most important discoveries from the cognitive revolution can be used to improve teaching and inspire students in the classroom." --John Gabrieli, Grover Hermann Professor of Health Sciences, Technology and Cognitive Neuroscience, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
"Scientists know so much more than we knew thirty years ago about
how children learn. This book offers you the research, and the arguments, that will help you become a more effective teacher." --Joe Riener, English teacher, Wilson High School, Washington, D.C.
