Format: Paperback
It is an excellent book that helps you to understand the way our brain works and the best way to plan, design and work activities for your students' brains. Neuroscience has come to stay in the educational area. There is no way, to give your back to the new developments in this field. As a teacher I have increase my knowledge and improve my methodologies as well as my everyday class routine. This is a book that changes your vision about learning, teaching and the way you see yourself and your students. I recommend this book to every teacher, no matter your teaching level. Also, a must for administrators and curriculum specialists. Spanish and English versions.
