Pick and Plan offers teachers 100 classroom-ready activities that are based upon how the brain learns and remembers new information. Beginning with a brief overview of the building blocks of the brain, four memory pathways, and what the research says, the author then introduces a five-part lesson planning model: engager, frame, activity, debrief, and story/metaphor. The book offers sample lessons that demonstrate each part of the model in practice, allowing the teacher to 'pick and plan' on an as-needed basis with a fully browsable table of contents. Research sidebars and lively discourse make the book a teacher-friendly resource for beginning or veteran teachers who want to liven up their lesson planning with brain-friendly strategies in mind.
