Summary

This book, from a neuroscience researcher and former classroom teacher, helps educators steer clear of “neuro-myths” and explains in teacher-friendly language how the brain learns. Award-winning researcher and presenter Janet Zadina explains the multiple pathways to the brain—not just Visual, Auditory, and Kinesthetic (which all fall under Sensory-Motor), but also the Language, Reward/Survival, Social, Emotional, Memory/Attention, and Frontal Lobe pathways.

While there has been a proliferation of books and workshops that aim to translate brain science into classroom practice, teachers are rarely shown how to implement the information they learn. Zadina offers three crucial components that allow teachers to create brain-compatible classrooms:

  • What: A basic understanding of the brain with information they can use with their students, including a description of multiple pathways in the brain involved in learning;
  • hy: The reasoning behind why the information should be considered when designing lessons; and most importantly:
  • How: General strategies to help teachers utilize this information to energize and enhance learning.

This book stands out from similar works because it is written by someone with credentials and experience in both cognitive neuroscience and education. It should help to bridge the gap between neuroscience and classroom instruction for teachers.
