“[R]eliable and well-researched . . . . [A]n excellent tool for anyone needing to better understand the research that should be a foundation for our teaching methods.” (2e: Twice-Exceptional Newsletter)
“Scientific studies of the developing brain are advancing with unprecedented speed, and educators need a source to support them in understanding and distilling the new findings into usable knowledge for pedagogy. Tokuhama-Espinosa’s book not only accomplishes this goal, but places the new knowledge in historical context, giving educators essential tools for evaluating neuroscientific information and responsibly integrating it into their daily practice.” (Dr. Mary Helen Immordino-Yang, University of Southern California Assistant Professor of Psychology at the Brain and Creativity Institute)
“Tracey Tokuhama-Espinosa had the courage, the talent and the generosity to present a comprehensive guide of the theory and practice of neuroeducation, in particular of the new brain-based teaching. She has followed with remarkable detail the different threads of the complex development of the mind, brain and education science and the amazing and inspiring history of the transdisciplinary research of many of the leading experts in the new field….This work is a vivid demonstration that the horizon of learning and teaching is expanding at increasing speed….[A] source of inspiration for many who are engaged in the search of a better education to all.” (Antonio M. Battro, MD, PhD, co-author of The Educated Brain)
