Our second book, The Science of Learning: 77 studies that every teacher needs to know, comes out on the 1st May 2019. So, what can you expect to find in there?

The Science of Learning is a much-needed resource for primary and secondary teachers to help their students improve how they think, feel and behave at school. This book allows teachers, across all subjects, to help children learn – through scientifically tested techniques.

Focusing on six key categories (Memory, Self-regulation and Metacognition, Teacher Attitude, Behaviour and Expectations, Student Behaviours and Thinking Biases), the studies in this book have been brought together in a widely accessible format for the first time to empower teachers with the best research to support their work.
