September 10, 2020 | McREL’s latest book on the science of learning received a good review from the most persuasive kind of influencer: a middle school teacher.

Dr. Laura Von Staden of Tampa, Florida, told readers of the MiddleWeb blog that Learning That Sticks: A Brain-Based Model for K–12 Instructional Design and Delivery, by Bryan Goodwin, Tonia Gibson, and Kristin Rouleau, is “a useful model of learning that includes the key components of recent learning science (interleaving, spaced practice, retrieval practice, etc.) and is worth a read.”

Learning That Sticks is based on McREL’s Six-Phase Model for Learning, which identifies the ways that students perceive, remember, and interpret information, and shows teachers how to create lessons that cater to the specific mental processes that students undergo at each stage.
