Forthcoming Book

Written by a cognitive scientist and a veteran K-12 teacher, stay tuned for a forthcoming book by Pooja K. Agarwal, Ph.D. & Patrice M. Bain, Ed.S., Powerful Teaching: Unleash the Science of Learning (Jossey-Bass, Spring 2019).

Powerful Teaching: Unleash the Science of Learning (forthcoming book)


Available Spring 2019, Powerful Teaching: Unleash the Science of Learning (published by Jossey-Bass, a Wiley brand) is the culmination of my 15-year collaboration with Patrice M. Bain, Ed.S., a veteran K-12 teacher. We have developed a rare partnership of scientist-and-teacher – one that is true to the rigors of cognitive science and also practical with today’s teachers in mind.

Drawing on our joint expertise, we decipher cognitive science research, illustrate how we have applied the science of learning in our own teaching, and provide evidence-based recommendations to empower educators to unleash the science of learning in their own classrooms.
