First released in the Spring of 1999, How People Learn has been expanded to show how the theories and insights from the original book can translate into actions and practice, now making a real connection between classroom activities and learning behavior. This edition includes far-reaching suggestions for research that could increase the impact that classroom teaching has on actual learning. Like the original edition, this book offers exciting new research about the mind and the brain that provides answers to a number of compelling questions. When do infants begin to learn? How do experts learn and how is this different from non-experts? What can teachers and schools do-with curricula, classroom settings, and teaching methods--to help children learn most effectively? New evidence from many branches of science has significantly added to our understanding of what it means to know, from the neural processes that occur during learning to the influence of culture on what people see and absorb. How People Learn examines these findings and their implications for what we teach, how we teach it, and how we assess what our children learn. The book uses exemplary teaching to illustrate how approaches based on what we now know result in in-depth learning. This new knowledge calls into question concepts and practices firmly entrenched in our current education system. Topics include: How learning actually changes the physical structure of the brain. How existing knowledge affects what people notice and how they learn. What the thought processes of experts tell us about how to teach. The amazing learning potential of infants. The relationship of classroom learning and everyday settings of community and workplace. Learning needs and opportunities for teachers. A realistic look at the role of technology in education.

How can teachers meet the growing diversity of learning needs in their classrooms? Furthermore, how do teachers meet this challenge in the midst of increasing pressures to master specified content? How to Differentiate Your Math Instruction: Lessons, Ideas, and Videos with Common Core Support shares classroom practices that help all students be successful and that give teachers the means to honor individual students and meet curricular outcomes simultaneously. The need for differentiation has never been clearer; as stated in the introduction to the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics, "The Standards should be read as allowing for the widest possible range of students to participate fully from the outset, along with appropriate accommodations to ensure maximum participation of students with special education needs." This multimedia resource offers: 21 video examples that illustrate how everything from menus and tiered tasks to math workshops and multiple intelligences centers can be carried out in the classroom; support for the Common Core State Standards of Mathematics, including lesson examples that focus on certain standards and integrate mathematical practices; Take Action! callouts that highlight exceptional ideas for differentiation and allow a reader-friendly way to access the text; and reproducibles (downloads provided upon purchasing this resource). This resource includes 21 video segments filmed in actual K-5 classrooms. Clips range from one to twelve minutes in length, with a total viewing time of approximately one hour and thirty minutes.
