Book Title: When Can You Trust the Experts?: How to Tell Good Science from Bad in Education

Author: Daniel T. Willingham

Book Description:

In my years of teaching, I've come across many research that claim to solve the problems of learning through so-called "best practices." While some of these findings are based on solid science, most are grossly inaccurate, confusing, and exaggerating. I love how this book brilliantly breaks down good science from bad science and helps me be a better educator, researcher, and advocate.
