Learning about Teaching by Debunking False Ideas about the Brain

Tracey Tokuhama-Espinosa (Author, Universidad de las Américas)


A compelling account of what we (think we) know about the brain.

Neuromyths—flawed beliefs about learning and teaching—have the capacity to adversely affect classroom practice. In this eye-opening examination of more than seventy such beliefs, Tracey Tokuhama-Espinosa debunks widely circulated myths and untangles scientific fact from pedagogical fiction. Here, teachers have an invaluable guide on how to avoid misconceptions and instead apply evidence-based practices from mind, brain, and education science.
