Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'If the learning styles juggernaut has passed you by until now, this book is a handy synthesis of current thinking. There are chapters on learning, cognition, gender, structuring lessons and the physical environment. The benefit of Steve Garnett's book is its simple, clear format and uncomplicated style. That's important because these are topics that people too frequently feel it is in their interest to complicate.' - Geoff Barton, TES

'This book has the merit of giving a concise overview of various theories related to learning and intelligence, and provides a good number of hints to make use of these in practice. Hence, it can have outcomes that are interesting and useful to teachers and parents who wish to support youngsters' mental development.' - British Journal of Educational Technology
