"The authors bring to this highly practical, user-friendly book a deep understanding of teachers and classrooms, the implications of neuroscientific findings for successful teaching and learning, and the ability to write about complex ideas in an approachable way."
-Carol Ann Tomlinson, EdD, author of How to Differentiate Instruction in Academically Diverse Classrooms

"Uncommon Sense Teaching is the first book I've found that perfectly blends neuroscience, cognitive psychology, learning strategies/theories, and practical tips for teachers into one delicious meal. Not too heavy on the neuro, not too light on the cognitive, large portions of learning and teaching implications served with a sauce of a witty and accessible writing. If there were a Michelin Guide for education books, this one would receive a 3-star rating."
-Paul A. Kirschner, Emeritus Professor of Educational Psychology, Open University of the Netherlands

"There are two reasons why everyone involved in education and training should read Uncommon Sense Teaching. First, the book integrates neuroscience, human cognition, and education into a coherent whole that is unique. Second, the writing is exceptionally clear, managing to convey complex ideas with infectious enthusiasm. The result is a masterpiece."
-John Sweller, Emeritus Professor of Educational Psychology, University of New South Wales
