Hoping some teachers also interested in using cognitive science to help improve their instruction will read and comment. I often feel frustrated that as a teacher I do not get a chance to voice what I think should be done to “reform” or improve education. Here is my chance. I put “reform” in quotes since most educational reforms have been tried, thrown out and tried again. Cognitive science does give us a new way to reflect on observations about teaching and learning in new ways. After 9 years of teaching I think I have figured some things out. I learn new things all the time. Part of why I like my job.
