Contributors to this volume, many of whom are former students and colleagues of Robbie Case, represent some of the leading researchers in developmental psychology. They were asked to explore the interface between mind, brain, and education during development. The subjects they examine range from science education to parenting, bullying, and personal development. Chapters are written in a style that makes them accessible both to teachers and graduate students, and in fact to anyone intrigued by the ways in which neuroscience, cognitive science and education inform one another.
The volume also contains a wealth of detail that experts will find informative and thought-provoking. Overall, the book shows both what has been accomplished in this emerging field, as well as the exciting work that remains to be done studying the developmental relations between mind, brain, and education. --Book Jacket.
