Format: Paperback
Do you want to change the education system or just improve your teaching? This book is for you.

In this short book (83 pages), Donna Walker Tileston had distilled the essential elements 10 research-based teaching practices that will transform student achievement. You will learn how to incorporate brain research findings of Eric Jensen and others with learning styles and learning standards to create a framework for teaching any subject area.

Each chapter includes a list of assessment tools and indicators of success. This is very helpful in developing powerful learning lessons and applying the 10 practices in the classroom.

This book is my teaching bible. It is helping me become the teacher my students need and want. Put this one next to Harry Wong's, 1st Days of School, Fay and Funk's, Teaching with Love and Logic. Essential for every new teacher. This is a book you will wear out.

I have been very interested in the science behind brain-based learning for awhile now and this book does a great job of writing about brain research, while still making the book easily digestible. I have actually found myself several times getting sucked into the book and reading for longer than I had planned. I have a plethora of highlights and dog ears that I am sure I will return to often. Definitely a book I can see myself rereading every year.

I liked it very much. The 10 practices are very well explained and "down to earth". I learned about some new ones, or I checked if the ones I was using were correct or not. I have even used a lot of the information in workshops and the teachers liked it very much too.
Excellent resource for teachers, administrators, educators in general.
