How can educators leverage neuroscience research about how the human brain learns? How can this information improve curriculum, instruction, and assessment so students achieve deep learning and understanding in all subject areas? Merging insights from neuroscience with Understanding by Design®, the framework used by thousands of educators to craft units of instruction and authentic assessments that emphasize understanding rather than recall, the authors translate research into practical how-to guidance that enables educators at all levels to design and implement units that empower teachers and students to capitalize on the brain's tremendous capacity for learning.
