This distinguished group of educators and scholars examine the topic within its social and cultural context; within the context of cognitive psychology and the neurosciences; and within the context of what it means to do work that is both excellent and ethical within the professions, most importantly as educators. This thought-provoking volume will be essential reading for all members of the educational community in the US, the UK, and elsewhere.
