Though a few years have passed since its publication, I still consider this to be one of the best books on learning ever produced. The detailed analysis of expert knowledge and its numerous implications for instruction make this must-reading for educators.
Publisher Summary
Links research on the science of learning to actual practice in the classroom, and describes how teachers and schools use teaching methods, curricula, and classroom settings to help children learn.

An expanded edition of a resource in which new research about the mind, the brain, and the processes of learning are applied to questions regarding curricula, classroom settings, and teaching methods. Drawing on the findings from many branches of science, the 11 chapters discuss how experts differ from novices, learning and transfer, how children learn, teachers and teaching, and future directions.
