Why do some students struggle to understand and retain information, while other students don't? The answer may well lie in the memory system, which is the root of all learning.

Why Do the Cultural Roots of Learning Matter So Much?

About the authors

Francis Bailey is the Director of the Teaching English as a Second Language (TESL) Master's program at the University of Kentucky. Francis has a doctoral degree from the University of Massachusetts. His primary educational focus is on issues in teaching English language learners in and outside of the United States. He has conducted research on second language acquisition and the challenges faced by culturally and linguistically diverse students due to differences between home (and community) ways of learning and knowing and the academic and social demands of schools. Francis has become increasingly interested in the ways that the cognitive sciences can inform our understanding of classroom learning.
