Expertly unpacks, in an easy-to-read and instantly useable way, what every teacher needs to know about the brain and how we really learn '? and what that suggests for how they should teach.
Foreword by Baroness Susan Greenfield CBE.
Everyone is curious about the brain '? including your learners! Not only can knowing more about the brain be a powerful way to understand what happens when your pupils '? and, of course, you '? pick up new knowledge and skills, but it can also offer a theoretical basis for established or new classroom practice. And as the field of neuroscience uncovers more of nature's secrets about the way we learn '? and further augments what we already know about effective teaching '? this book advocates more efficient pedagogies rooted in a better understanding and application of neuroscience in education.
By surveying a wide range of evidence in specific areas such as metacognition, memory, mood and motivation, the teenage brain and how to cater for individual differences, Neuroscience for Teachers shares relevant, up-to-date information to provide a suitable bridge for teachers to transfer the untapped potential of neuroscientific findings into practical classroom approaches. The key issues, challenges and research are explained in clear language that doesn't assume a prior level of knowledge on the topic that would otherwise make it inaccessible '? therefore enabling more teachers to better comprehend the lessons from neuroscience '? while the authors also take care to expose the ways in which '?neuromyths' can arise in education in order to help them avoid these pitfalls.
Laid out in an easy-to-use format, each chapter features: '?Research Zones' highlighting particular pieces of research with a supplementary insight into the area being explored; '?Reflection' sections that give you something to think about, or suggest something you might try out in the classroom; and concluding '?Next steps' that outline how teachers might incorporate the findings into their own practice. The authors have also included a glossary of terms covering the book's technical vocabulary to aid the development of teachers' literacy in the field of neuroscience.
Packed with examples and research-informed tips on how to enhance personal effectiveness and improve classroom delivery, Neuroscience for Teachers provides accessible, practical guidance supported by the latest research evidence on the things that will help your learners to learn better.
Suitable for LSAs, NQTs, teachers, middle leaders, local authority advisers and anyone working with learners.
