Powerful Teaching Book

Cognitive scientist Pooja K. Agarwal, Ph.D. and veteran teacher Patrice M. Bain, Ed.S. are experts on transforming teaching with the science of learning. Learn more about their 15-year partnership and their book, Powerful Teaching.

Powerful Teaching: Unleash the Science of Learning


The book Powerful Teaching: Unleash the Science of Learning 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.
