Cognitive Science is a particular interest of mine. I am always interested in brain-based theories of how to engage students in the classroom learning experience. Perhaps because this volume is already six years old, I didn't find any information that was new to me, but I enjoyed reviewing the concepts put forth here.
This is a good introductory book. It is practical, straight-forward and easy to understand.
Many students, especially English Language Learners, fail school due to a lack of proficiency in their literacy skills (reading/writing + numeracy). This is a fact. This is true in the USA where the number of ELLs is increasing, and also across Europe. In the Middle East, where I teach, the number one reason why our students fail is linked to reading, and the number two reason is writing. In workshops and at conferences I see that the pedagogy being provided is still didactic in nature. It does not work.
I was provided with a class filled with remedial students and it was expected that 60% of the class would fail, or more. I had 18/21 pass. I never dissected the grammar with or for them, we never memorized lists of vocabulary, but we became familiar with these items, and developed an understanding across various activities as this book puts forth.
What a great book - order it, enjoy it.
