What Do You Know?The best way to learn and remember a new fact is to repeat it over and over again.
Most children 5 years of age and older are natural learners: They know the best way to learn something without having to be taught how to learn it.
When a teacher rewards one student for appropriate behavior, the behavior of other students usually suffers as a result.
Students are often poor judges of how much theyve learned.
Anxiety sometimes helps students learn and perform more successfully in the classroom.
When teachers have children tutor their classmates in academic subject matter, the tutors gain very little from the process.
The ways in which teachers assess students learning influence what and how the students actually learn.
