A Chronicle of Higher Education “Top 10 Books on Teaching” Selection

To most of us, learning something “the hard way” implies wasted time and effort. Good teaching, we believe, should be creatively tailored to the different learning styles of students and should use strategies that make learning easier. Make It Stick turns fashionable ideas like these on their head. Drawing on recent discoveries in cognitive psychology and other disciplines, the authors offer concrete techniques for becoming more productive learners.

“If you want to read a lively and engaging book on the science of learning, this is a must.”
—Hazel Christie, Times Higher Education

“Many educators are interested in making use of recent findings about the human brain and how we learn…Make It Stick [is] the single best work I have encountered on the subject. Anyone with an interest in teaching or learning will benefit from reading this book.”
—James M. Lang, Chronicle of Higher Education
