Kurzbeschreibung

Combining pieces directly from scientific research with those written for the classroom teacher, the book demystifies recent neuroscience findings, and offers valuable insights into how students learn, and how we should teach them. Some of the topic areas covered are: memory and the multiplication table, decoding and comprehending language, the alphabetic principle and dyslexia, attention and imagination, brain plasticity, multiple intelligences, and the "brain-based" classroom debate. Many of the pieces include interesting visual tests, easy-to-understand brain diagrams, and other useful illustrative material. The volume engages the reader and takes them on a unique journey into the brain, mind, and education.
