5.0 out of 5 stars This book has changed the way I teach! February 5, 1999
Format:Paperback
This book is the basis for my graduate study work. I've applied the brain-based learning principles in my classrooms and enjoyed stunning results. Teaching is easier & more effective. Students are enthusiastic and inspired to learn more. Grades and attitudes improve with BBL techniques.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must for every modern day educator! May 9, 1998
Format:Paperback
Every teacher owes it to their students to read this book and make it part of their repetoire. The authors have gathered meaningful information and put it in language that every educator can understand. The challenge is to change our anti-brain methods in schools and to re-invent education NOW! The information fits educational work with every age. If nothing else is learned, the "DOWNSHIFTING" that the brain does when in the presence of threat should cause us to re-examine our motivational methods used with young and adolescent students.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential for building a "brain based" classroom. June 26, 1998
Format:Paperback
This book was extremely helpful in explaining how the brain absorbs and processes information. If you are interested in brain research, and how it impacts teaching your students, this book is a MUST! It explains how much information the human brain can process, and the various stages of learning.

By Agratt
Format:Paperback
Before reading this book I thought I understood how teaching was suppose to be after all I did get my credential and a degree. I learned more from this book then from all two years in the credential program. This book along with all the other books from the Caine's have give me a reason to obtain my Ph.D. If you want to truly understand how the brain truly learned then this is the book for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars social learning June 8, 2007
Format:Paperback
There is more packed in this little book about how we, humans, learn than in hundreds of education manuals.

Should be required reading for teachers and students.
