This powerful book is based on Eric Jensen's belief that you can have a thriving classroom, one where students look forward to homework rather than complain about it, where teachers learn with students, and where each individual is heard, appreciated, and respected. This book embodies a vision of a school where teachers affect decisions about the curriculum, their classroom, their students, and school policies. The author also shares his vision of a partnership where teachers, students, parents, and administrators work as a team, sharing ideas, supporting each other, and enjoying the privilege of facilitating quality learning that empowers students. Completely rewritten and revised, Super Teaching, Fourth Edition examines how students learn, how instruction physically changes a student's brain, and what research says about the factors that contribute the most to student performance. Jensen discusses lesson planning with the standards in mind, strategies to motivate and engage students, boosting student memory and recall, assessments, and mindsets or mental models of success for teachers. The book also covers the effects of poverty on children and learning, categories of learning styles, managing students' emotional states with music, building positive relationships with students, and developing solid classroom management skills. This is the book for educators who want to revitalize their perspectives on teaching and who want to combine best practices with brain-friendly instruction to inspire and empower students and advanceatheir academic achievement.
