Ideal for educators, parents and teachers, this encyclopedia provides a wealth of knowledge about why educational experiences are structured the way they are and how this helps students learn more. Cognitive neuroscience and its practical use in education provides much of the research for this book, however, the entries are written at a level appropriate for a general reader.
