5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By D. Dahl on October 21, 2010
Format: Paperback
This book provides a wealth of research based strategies which can immediately be implemented in your classroom. Rather than just throwing a bunch of ideas at you, Conyers and Wilson present a research based foundation for the strategies they suggest.

Take a look at the chapter titles:

1. BrainSMART Student Achievement
2. Ten Key Facts About Your Brilliant Brain
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
6. Attention: How to Gain and Sustain Focused Attention on the Real Work of Learning.
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.

Format: Paperback
Drs. Donna Wilson and Marcus Conyers have done it again! Their latest edition of BrainSMART 60 Strategies for Increasing Student Learning (fourth edition) meets the criteria for accessible and applicable tools for teachers. This edition allows teachers to either read cover-to-cover or browse through at intervals in order to discover tips and strategies for working with their students. The book also contains a wealth of knowledge in the most updated and cutting-edge information on brain-based learning. I hold the degree of educational specialist, and I highly recommend this book for both new and seasoned professionals.
