Leading and Learning in Schools: Brain-based Practices
As a result of the research taking place in cognitive science, neuroscience, the human genome project, physics and pharmacology, we are in the midst of a knowledge explosion. Never before have we had the potential for increasing our success with a wider range of students; knowing how students learn will inevitably lead us to more effective ways of teaching. In this groundbreaking work, Cram and Germinario present brain-based research in the language of laymen. More importantly, they show how administrators and teachers can use those findings to improve schools. This volume examines the mental models upon which schools operate, and how they blend (or compete) with the emerging frameworks for brain-compatible teaching and learning.
