Abstract
Our understanding of how people learn has grown as the research in brain and cognitive science has exploded over the last several years. This research, of course, has direct implications for how we understand and teach our students. This is the second part of a two part series exploring the most recent research on how people learn. Part two will focus on teaching strategies that create learning environments where students can thrive.
