Publisher's Summary

Why Don't Students Like School? (2nd Edition) features 25 percent updated material while still honoring the classic, beloved approaches of the original. The book draws its themes from the most frequently asked questions in his "Ask the Cognitive Scientist" column in the American Educator, such as - How can I teach students the skills they need when standardized testing just requires facts? Why do students remembers everything on TV but forget everything I say? How should I adjust my teaching for different learning styles?

The second edition will help teachers improve their practice by explaining how they and their students think and learn and reveals the importance of story, emotion, memory, context, and routine in building knowledge and creating lasting learning experiences. This edition will be a valuable resource for both veteran and novice teachers, teachers-in-training, and for the principals, administrators, and staff development professionals who work with them.

Very helpful book for teachers

This book answered many of my questions. The part in memory especially. The reading is clear and keeps my attention. I think every teacher should read it.
