40 Engaging Brain-Based Tools for the Classroom by Michael Alfred Scaddan
Book DescriptionInformed by the latest research from behaviorists, neuroscientists, and cognitive researchers, this flexible guide provides fun, yet effective techniques for introducing brain-compatible learning in the Ku12 classroom and helps develop educators' understanding of how the brain, mind, and body function in the learning process. Based on a holistic brain-compatible model developed by the author, this resource not only demonstrates why brain-friendly learning is effective, it also strengthens teachers' instructional skills, reduces behavioral distractions in the classroom, and improves academic performance. Teachers can access 40 engaging tools to improve learning and test results across a broad range of skills and select from a series of practical techniques to use every week of the school year. Each of four sections includes ten class-tested tools with handy tips for use in a variety of classroom environments and for a wide range of student needs and experiences. A Brain-based Review in each section encourages the reader to critically reflect upon the tools to evaluate what works, what doesn't, and where to make changes. With stimulating quotes and motivational proverbs for inspiration, plus strategies, stories, songs, and poems woven throughout the text, this is an ideal book for any educator looking for fresh ways to encourage each and every child to succeed.
