Brain-Compatible Activities, Grades K-2



September 2007 | 96 pages | Corwin
Sophisticated medical instruments have provided us with a unique glimpse into the learning brain. As educators, we can take the knowledge and apply it to teaching in our classrooms. Brain research has led us to 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.
