Use the latest findings in brain research to build high-achievement classrooms!

In recent years, much attention has been paid to the research findings on how the brain functions and how that understanding can be used to improve instruction and learning for all students. Robin Fogarty helps educators better understand and utilize the key discoveries in brain research and presents brain-friendly, practical strategies for differentiating learning.

Summarizing research from noted theorists such as Arthur L. Costa, Robert J. Marzano, and Daniel Goleman, this updated edition has been reorganized into three parts for a more comprehensive examination of the relationship between brain science and effective classroom practice. Chapters cover:

An introduction to the brain and how it works, including gender differences and how they affect learningApplication of brain research findings to learning principles, with compelling implications for the classroomThe brain-mind connection and how cognitive science and brain science complement each otherA four-corner paradigm for quality teaching: setting the climate for learning, using brain-based teaching skills, putting it all into practice, and receiving student feedback

Inspiring and insightful, the third edition of Brain-Compatible Classrooms offers a highly relevant, holistic model for applying brain research in the classroom.
