Description

This book offers a definitive, scientifically grounded guide for better teaching and learning practices. Drawing from thousands of documents and the opinions of recognised experts worldwide, it explains in straight talk the new Mind, Brain and Education Science – a field that has grown out of the intersection of neuroscience, education and psychology. While parents and teachers are often bombarded with promises of “a better brain”, this book distinguishes true, applicable neuroscience from the popular neuromyths that have gained currency in education. Each instructional guideline presented in the book is accompanied by real-llife classroom examples to help teachers envision the direct application of the information in their own schools. The author offers essential tools for evaluating new information as it flows from research and adds to what we know. Written by a teacher for teachers, this easy-to-use resource:



  • Documents the findings of the top experts in the fields of neuroscience, psychology and education

  • Addresses the confusion around the misuse of concepts in brain-based education

  • Applies well-substantiated findings about the brain to classroom practice and teaching
