Pulling It All Together: Perspectives on the Brain, Learning, and Teaching
Posted March 13, 2008
The title of the book is very appealing, yet it has very little to do with teaching reading. The author uses way too many personal passages and anecdotes. The brain-based research is not at all exclusive to teaching reading it is just a compilation of what a good teacher should do. I was expecting something for teaching reading to student who are struggling with it, instead is just a book about how children learn, and I think we already have plenty of those, some of them very, very good ones. This book is just one more about how children learn and not even a great one.
