    DescriptionWritten by an author who combines the disciplines of biology and education to show how people learn and how knowing this can help teachers to teach effectively. This book deals with teaching based on new biological understandings about how the brain assimilates new knowledge and deals with what teachers most need to know, that is, how to teach so successfully that classroom discipline ceases to be an issue. This book is intended to help students to develop habits and skills that will make learning easier. The author describes how a philosophy of teaching develops and why it's important to have one;learning as brain change rather than brain use;language and the questionable utility of unexpressed ideas; first-year students - their culture, motivation and preparation; how the way we teach affects the way students learn; what students are really doing in the classroom; writing and other technologies, old and new. He is alert to the psychology of students, understands and has experiences the frustrations teachers feel when students ingeniously elude their teachers' loftiest goals and strategies. Most important, Robert Leamnson has good advice about how to cope with the challenge.

    Review quote
    "This book is for teachers of first-year students. Although many of its themes are standard, it is well worth reading for its wisdom, unusual perspective, and refreshing style. These qualities reflect the author's personality and his background as a biologist and a very experienced teacher at both secondary and tertiary levels. A strong appeal is the author's delightful style, and his memorable imagery and anecdotes. I recommend this thought-provoking and enjoyable book to anyone involved in teaching first-year students."
