In friendly, readable prose, Sarah Rose Cavanagh argues that if you want to capture your students' attention, harness their working memory, bolster their long-term retention, and enhance their motivation, you should consider the emotional impact of your teaching style and course design. To make this argument, she brings to bear a wide range of evidence from the study of education, psychology, and neuroscience, and she provides practical example activities from a variety of disciplines.
