Dr. Smilkstein likens the learning brain to twigs on a tree; the twigs grow from a branch that is already there (prior knowledge).

Rita Smilkstein stands up for people's ability to learn, and was able to show me a way to get my students to reconnect with the joy of learning. I highly recommend it for every teacher!

I learned some things, fascinating parts of how the brain learns, and I especially enjoyed the ideas on how to develop a curriculum so that all students can learn!

Dr. Smilkstein has explained how the brain attaches new learning to the neuron-networks established for the initial concept in each student's mind. She discusses how students are involved and interested when they know they are building new dendrites to connect across synapses and create more knowledge for the student. And she does this with simple approaches classroom teachers can initiate easily without losing the focus the testing mandates press upon them each day. It's worth the read just for the encouragement.

I had to read this for a class. It was okay book over all. If your gonna be a teacher this is a good book to read to help successfully teach your students.

Verbose.

The messages in the book doesn't worth 200 pages to convey. Similar ideas, similar expressions are repeated again and again in the pages, kind of wastes reader's time.

The book doesn't introduce much new ideas on theoretical side, its more or less uniqued content is mostly from the stories in the author's personal teaching experience. If the book would be rewritten into a 30-40 page mini-book, I would definitely rate it 3-star.

imho, the whole book can be summarized in a few sentences:
1. People have natural tendency to learn new things.
2. Learning relates to and happens with neural system growth in the brain.
