|Target Audience Note:||
Neuromyths—flawed beliefs about learning and teaching—have the capacity to adversely affect classroom practice. In this 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.
