Format: Paperback
This book is VERY informative on a variety of Brain Based-Learning strategies that are EXTREMELY necessary for today's education of children. Due to the diversity of our children today (and many other factors), this book is designed for REACHING ALL STUDENTS. Within this EASY TO READ and EASY TO LEARN book, there are MANY strategies that DO ENHANCE AND INCREASE STUDENT Achievement and Behavior in the classroom. After reading this book and completing a course in relation to the book, I used these STRATEGIES, RESOURCES, and EXAMPLES EVERY single DAY in the classroom. I have MANY success stories on students who improved in both Student Achievement and an INCREASE IN STUDENT ATTENTION during class. This book is AWESOME for TEACHERS, ADMINISTRATORS, and PARENTS. After reading this book, if you are a teacher or other school official, you will find these strategies and techniques come to you WITHOUT having to return to the book and READ AND RE=Read. Due to the design and structure of the book, as well as the contents being very clear, related, and having examples, teachers will USE the STRATEGIES and TECHNIQUES on a DAILY basis and YOU WILL SEE RESULTS IN YOUR CLASSROOM (Or for parents, in your child's achievement AND INTEREST in school). There is no room for BOREDOM when using these techniques and there are techniques and examples of just about any issue you may have with a student. In today's educational world, the focus is on TEST SCORES (standardized testing). In this Book, you will find an ABUNDANCE of strategies and techniques that will help you, as an educator, to boost those TEST scores. I say this because your students will NOT be "memorizing" content and then LOSE IT, they will LEARN the CONTENT so that they are able to RECALL information when the end of the year comes and its "TEST" time!Read more ›

3. The SMART Model(tm); The Synergy of Neuroscience and Common Sense
4. State: The Power to Produce Results
5. Meaning: How to Make Learning Meaningful in Your Classroom

7. Retention: Teaching with Memory in Mind
8. Helping Students Transfer Learning from the Classroom to Success on the Test and in Life
9. Sixty BrainSMART Strategies and Your Own BrainSMART Lesson Planning Guide

The BrainSMART acronym which stands for State, Meaning, Attention, Retention, and Transfer. These are the five components of the BrainSMART model which are fully explained in the book. Each component has a full section of tools to help transfer that research model into success in the classroom.

You will honestly be thrilled with this book. I highly recommend it.
