Millions of parents trust that the professionals who teach their children know something about the brain and processes of learning, despite the fact that most schools of education offer psychology--not neurology--courses. At best, these psychology courses provide indirect information about the brain and how children actually learn.
Teaching with the Brain in Mind fills this gap with the latest practical, easy-to-understand research on learning and the brain. It balances research and theory on the brain with successful tips and techniques for using that information in classrooms. From its primer on brain biology to in-depth discussions of emotion, memory, and recall, Teaching with the Brain in Mind is an invaluable tool for any educator looking to better reach students through truly brain-compatible teaching and learning. 2005
