I would recommend this book as a must read for all educators – How Learning Works: 7 Research-based Principles for Smart Teaching. The authors are principally from Carnege Mellons' Centre for Teaching Excellence (S.A. Ambrose, M. Dipietro, M.C. Lovett, M.K. Norman), and also including one (M.W. Bridges) from the University of Pittsburgh. It is written in a simple, concise, straight to the point, well organized, and clearly written. I blog about it here:

A People's History of the United States by Howard Zinn....this book is the reason I became a history teacher.
