From the Foreword by Arthur L Costa

`Connecting research from the neurosciences, sound constructivist pedagogical practices and the National Teaching Standards, the authors produced a treasure of brain-based classroom practices to enhance learning. 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

Renate and Geoffrey Caine, known world-wide for clarifying for educators how to apply brain research to teaching and learning, make the bridge from research to classrooms more practical than ever in this newest work. A stand-alone guide for both new and familiar readers, this Fieldbook, with new co-authors, for Making Connections, Teaching, and the Human Brain, applies their widely recognized 12 Principles of Brain/Mind Learning to today's learning context. New research from neurosciences, education and related disciplines, particularly the important findings about the brain's executive function; combine here with years of experience of working with schools internationally to put brain research to work in the classroom. The 12 Principles, with tools for application in teaching, cluster here around three critical elements of learning: climate; instruction
