Brain-Compatible Activities, Grades 3-5



September 2007 | 96 pages | Corwin
Sophisticated medical instruments provide a unique glimpse into the learning brain, generating information for both researchers and educators. Using brain research, educational leaders can develop instructional techniques that facilitate the brain's innate learning capacity. The more teachers know about how the brain learns, the more instructional options they have. This activity book, based on David A. Sousa's How the Brain Learns, Third Edition, provides ready-to-use, brain-compatible activities for all content areas. Each step-by-step lesson includes detailed instructions for the teacher and all the necessary reproducibles.
