This is great. Much of the details in the book make sense when I think about classroom conditions and why kids act the way they sometimes do. Also, there are sensible ideas about how to best reach all students, keeping how their brain development is controlling some of their reactions and natural proclivities. I like how the chapters are arranged leading the reader through the basics to more detailed understanding of brain-based learning. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0871202999, Paperback)

Every year, millions of parents trust that the professionals who teach their children know something about the brain and processes of learning. But 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. Consider important questions such as

- Biologically, can you truly expect to get and hold students' attention for long periods of time?
- How has research on rewards been misinterpreted?
- Do students actually "forget" what we teach them, or do we ask them to recall information in the wrong way?
- What are the surprising benefits for learning across the board when students participate in some sort of physical education or movement?

Teaching with the Brain in Mind balances the research and theory of 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.

Explores how to improve student achievement and create a more effective classroom by applying brain research to teaching. Includes insights on how students are wired for learning and how their learning behaviors change as they mature.
