“A great little book packed with conceptual contrasts and rich classroom vignettes. The best resource I’ve found for teaching about theories of learning in a liberal arts college.”

“A well-written and readable book. Phillips and Soltis should be commended for bringing together these various perspectives on learning that can be used by both pre-service and in-service teachers. The case studies presented help illustrate the theories and should facilitate active class discussions.”
