After reading numerous books on educational psychology, in an attempt to inform my practice, I encountered this wonderful research text. "How People Learn" is written in a way that allows readers to synthesize the information into their everyday practice. The editors have included multi-disciplinary examples, in order to appeal to educators across the subject area spectrum, and these examples are straight forward and easy to understand. My experience reading psychology texts is that the examples to describe behavior studies are not well-suited for laypeople and impossible to apply to everyday practice, because they are often related to training animals to memorize simple tasks, rather than examples of strategies for classrooms of learners.

I'm currently a 1st year student in an ed psych doctoral program. This is the main textbk for a class called "Cognition, Instruction, and the Design of Learning Environments: Introduction to the Learning Sciences." It's written to be more reader-friendly, which is nice --- especially since we are also assigned plenty of other academic journal articles that can be harder to wrap your head around!

Great book. The authors are all reputatable folks in the field. It's the perfect starting point for someone like me!
I use How People Learn in my graduate school class entitled Applied Learning for School Leaders. The strength of this book as a text is that it looks at learning holistically, rather than subject by subject. The three principles can be used to guide understanding of learning whether it is in reading, mathematics, social studies, or science. Additionally, school leaders see the entire school, so approaching the subject holistically accommodates their needs better. My students like the book and express that it is more readable than the usual text book. Since their backgrounds are varied, the integrated approach also gives them lots of entrances into the material. I highly recommend this book for classes concerned with updating the knowledge base of practicing educators.
