"Like me, I trust you will enjoy reading, dipping into, thinking about, following up, questioning and asking for more - as you touch this book. This is my 'book of the decade'." - John Hattie, Laureate Professor at Melbourne University, Australia "This is the book I have been waiting for. Whether you are just beginning as a teacher, or a seasoned veteran, there will be something here that will be directly relevant to your practice, and, perhaps more importantly, will make you think." - Dylan Wiliam, Emeritus Professor of Educational Assessment at UCL, UK "This book will prove irresistible to anyone keen to understand more about essential educational research findings in the most accessible manner possible. An absolute must for every school." - Professor Dame Alison Peacock, Chief Executive at The Chartered College of Teaching, UK "The Science of Learning is a timely and precious gift to teachers. Interpreting research accurately and applying it intelligently are not easy tasks. This book has made them far easier. Every teacher should be given a copy." - Jonnie Noakes, Head of Teaching and Learning at Eton College, UK "Busch and Watson have come up with that rarity: an educational must-read. I will be recommending it to every teacher I know!" - Chris Hildrew, Headteacher at Churchill Academy, UK "This book is a highly practicable guide to the often impenetrable field of education research and is a very useful compass for school leaders, classroom teachers and parents alike in seeking which evidence based strategies to implement." - Carl Hendrick, author of What Does This Look Like in the Classroom?, UK "The authors say they have three aims with the book: to bring together these articles in one book for people who otherwise don't know where to look; to provide such content without needing a costly subscription; and to make these sources more accessible, as they can be quite difficult to read. In my opinion, they succeed with all three." - Dr Christian Bokhove, TES "The presentation of the topics in 77 succinct sections make this a really accessible, easy to use book. It's not daunting to just tackle one topic at a time, and in total the articles add up to really practical and useful knowledge, presented clearly." - Sarah Brew, Parents in Touch "If you're a teacher who wants to find out about many interesting findings from educational research, without having to spend precious free periods or leisure time looking for it, you should buy this book. And if you're a team leader, buying a copy for each member of your team would not be a bad investment - especially if you used selected studies as the basis for team discussions." - Terry Freedman, Schools Week "This is a really excellent resource for the busy teacher, education student or study support tutor with plenty of food for thought and easy to understand classroom or teaching suggestions." - Jan Beechey MCILIP, Dyslexia Review
