The Art and Science of How People Learn - Revised Edition
Edited By Greg S. Goodman
This book takes educational psychology out of the hands of scholarship that examines how people learn as individuals and places it squarely in the palms of lived realities of today’s children and adolescents, arguing that learning is social as well as cognitive, and that learning has social consequences. All of the authors in this book ask readers to consider that what students learn is as important as how they learn it. To this end, the book seeks to engage readers in a dialogue about social justice and the need to engage in school experiences where students pose critical questions about the curriculum, expose its vested interests and hidden agendas, and ultimately, become agents of change.
