Back to Brain Matters: Translating Research into Classroom Practice (2nd Edition)
While you don't need to be a scientist to understand brain-compatible teaching, you'll be far more effective when you base your teaching practices on the very best scientific information. This expanded and updated ASCD best-seller delivers that essential information in clear, everyday language that any teacher can immediately incorporate into classroom practice. Renowned educator and consultant Patricia Wolfe explains
- How the brain encodes, manipulates, and stores information.
- Why meaning is essential for attention.
- How emotion can enhance or impede learning.
- Why different types of rehearsal are necessary for different types of learning.
Plus, an all-new section explores brain development from birth through adolescence; the effect of exercise, sleep, nutrition, and technology on the brain; and the importance of neuroplasticity. Discover classroom-proven examples of how you can enhance learning in all grades and subjects and add to your repertoire of brain-compatible teaching strategies.
