Debunking False Ideas About The Brain
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.
“When teachers and schools need to justify the ways in which they teach, this book will be of value to guide choices made about how neuroscience links to classroom practice. The author has taken complex research findings and summarised them in an accessible format.” — SEN
