The science of learning can give some rich insights into how teachers can design and deliver lessons that accelerate and deepen student learning. In this quick reference guide, Bryan Goodwin and Tonia Gibson use three tools to explain their six-phase model:
* Insights from brain science* Implications for the classroom* Tips to help students engage in deep learning
Using Brain Science to Make Learning Stick provides classroom activities that are based in scientific research to help K–12 teachers plan learning experiences that mirror how students turn new information into memory and to make the entire process of learning more effective, engaging, and rewarding for all.

What teachers say to students—and how they say it—affects student learning and behavior. Language sets the tone for learning. Teachers use it to foster a positive culture and climate in school, manage students, and teach discipline. Mike Anderson, author of the best-selling What We Say and How We Say It Matter, offers advice to help teachers get started with building better language habits to support psitive culture and climate; efffective management and discripline; and strong academic engagement.
In far too many classrooms, the emphasis is on instructional strategies that teachers employ rather than on what students should be doing or thinking about as part of their learning. What’s more, students’ minds are something of a mysterious “black box” for most teachers, so when learning breaks down, they’re not sure what went wrong or what to do differently to help students learn. It doesn’t have to be this way. Learning That Sticks helps you look inside that black box. Bryan Goodwin and his coauthors unpack the cognitive science underlying research-supported learning strategies so you can sequence them into experiences that challenge, inspire, and engage your students. As a result, you’ll learn to teach with more intentionality—understanding not just what to do but also when and why to do it.
