Educators wishing to harmonize their educational practices with research on brain functioning will find this fieldbook indispensable." —Arthur L. Costa, Emeritus Professor of Education California State University, Sacramento
"In this ‘how-to’ book, the authors offer practical suggestions for merging today’s requirements for teaching to standards with recent findings from brain research. If you are a practitioner or school leader looking for a way to energize staff with a spirit of inquiry and create a genuine quest for continuous improvement, this book is required reading." —Judy Stevens, Former Director of Elementary Schools Spring Branch ISD Houston, Texas"As educators are invited to think about new possibilities and try new approaches, administrators and other instructional leaders are provided very practical strategies to support and nurture that growth—with new patterns of teaching and learning emerging as the process unfolds." —Linda Hargan, CEO Collaborative for Teaching and Learning, Louisville, KY

The brilliant 'colors' of theory, practice, and sensitivity blend to create a beautiful learning mosaic for today's teachers and children." —Dottie Gottshall, Professor, Elementary Education Department Stephen F. Austin State UniversityStep up to—and meet—the challenges of how to use the latest brain research for teaching, with these practical, concrete applications!This new book from the Caines and their colleagues will introduce readers to their renowned 12 organizing principles for how the brain learns and explain how to use that knowledge for student learning. For those hundreds of thousands already using the Caines’ groundbreaking work in their schools, this fieldbook will bring the latest research on the brain and its executive function and make the principles more practical than ever before for classroom application.
12 Brain/Mind Learning Principles in Action is grouped around key teaching and learning fundamentals:Climate for learning Instruction Student processingLinked to National Teaching Standards, this fieldbook builds the bridge from new brain research to classroom practice. With distinct elements for teachers and school leaders, it will facilitate adoption by whole learning communities. ...Continua Nascondi
