    1. It's not a book per se but a handy, relatively concise synopsis of what current brain science tells us about best practices for teaching and learning. In addition to outlining the research and the practices, each chapter has a “risks of”, “good and bad examples”, and references. Here's a synopsis:A: Analogy1. Explaining the novel by analogy2. Show two examples and ask about deep structure vs. surface featuresB: Belonging -ward off stereotype threat -make it easy to belong -Shared norms - [...]

    2. First off, either I totally missed everything this book said or the book description on is wrong (it has absolutely nothing to do with global politics, much less the Palestine-Israeli conflict). More seriously, this book was a good guide to understanding some of the basics of learning and how to facilitate learning as a teacher. I read this book in the context of my job as a "peer learning assistant" (aka, a tutor), but it also changed some things about how I approached my classes as a student. [...]

    3. While some of the entries are a bit forced to fit the alphabet scheme and could be folded into other chapters, I really loved this book and wish it was available years ago. As someone very interested in educational techniques and singing the graces of various techniques which seem to be aggressively ignored in the education of adults, it was vindicating to see them present here with scientific backing, well-organized by utility. A must-read for every educator.

    4. I highly recommend this book to both students and professionals. As the title suggests, the book presents twenty-six topics in the latest research for how learning happens in humans. It opened my eyes to how I could approach and grow in my profession and in my life. It also helped me to reflect on times when I wasn't learning effectively, and how I could've maybe approached it differently. Furthermore, it gave me insight into how schools, organizations, and companies can be better prepared to he [...]

    5. Written by a team of Stanford professors, this book manages to be practical and scholarly at the same time. Loved it! If I ever get a chance to instruct again, I'll go back and re-read it then keep it close by on the shelf. Recommended to any educator.

    6. I love this idea of summarizing teaching/learning strategies with the 26 Alphabet letters. A is for analogy. B is for Belonging. C is for contrasting cases. D is for deliberate practice. E is for elaboration. F is for feedbackG is for generation. H is for hands on. I is for imaginative play. J is for just-in-time telling. K is for knowledge. L is for listening and sharing. M is for making. N is for norms. O is for organization. P is for participation. Q is fur question driven. R is for reward. S [...]
