I stumbled upon Chris Biffle and Whole Brain Teaching when coming to terms with how much behavior issues were sapping my love of teaching. I started using the strategies in this book and my class was transformed in a week! If you are a new teacher ..get the book before you step in the classroom. If you are questioning your career choice and where the joy went....buy the book and start over on Monday. I promise, you will love teaching again! I will never go back to teaching without WBT.

What a great resource and what a wonderful man who has tirelessly worked to make a difference in the lives of teachers and students across the globe. When I saw he had published a book on Whole Brain Teaching, I promptly bought it and got reading.

Oh the beauty of teaching... my dear readers... and the wonderful feeling to be had from a classroom filled with happy shiny students...

The power to move mountains.... oh ok, not mountains, but definitely a few minds, something infinitely more powerful...

I started using Chris Biffle's Whole Brain Teaching methods more than 8 years ago when I started my most challenging class ever: teaching English to Grade 1s.

"Whats so challenging about that ?" I hear you ask.

Well....(holding up 3 fingers) ....three things:

1) They are 6 years old and have a seriously limited attention span. We are talking roughly 5 minutes. 8 if its early morning, 3 if its the last period.
2) I teach at an all-boys school. so only boys in my class : say no more.
3) My classroom consist of students who have almost no understanding of English. They are all native Thais, who beyond 'Hello' and 'Im fine', are totally unfamiliar with the language. I may as well be teaching Klingon.

Over the years Ive used Whole Brain Teaching and it has changed everything. Kids are engaged all the time and thanks to this alone, bad behavior is substantially reduced. Its brilliant to help kids remember vocabulary or sentence structures by building a powerful bridge between saying words and associating it with kinetic movement. It allows students to become co-teachers to help reinforce information , empower them and allow them to stay engaged in the learning process.

i am a principal of an elementary school in which several teachers have begun to implement Whole Brain Teaching. We bought copies for our Summer Book Club and will buy copies for other teachers who are interested. The book explains the beginnings of WBT and gives specific, step by step instructions for implementing the program. I love the program because I can see that every student in the classroom is engaged and the teachers can assess the depth of student understanding quickly. Not to mention the fact that the students and teachers are having tons of fun! The program described in the book is highly effective as a classroom management tool and as a way to achieve content mastery. I highly recommend the book and program.

If you love the videos on their website, you'll love this book. This really nails down some concepts for me. I learn best by reading, so I'm thrilled to have this in print!

The book is good if you are going to use the ideas in your classroom. Be sure to check out the YouTube videos to see it in action.

I have taught in an urban school district for almost 5 years...I discovered WholeBrainTeaching.com about a month before this school year through YouTube and Pinterest and became instantly hooked! My students have responded to it in amazing ways! It is not only a classroom management game changer but it has revolutionized the way I teach and the way my students retain what they've learned! When you teach with the golden thread of fun you will find you will NEVER go back to the standard BLAH way of teaching. My 5th graders are in love with WBT as much as I am!!! This manual is a MUST for ANY teacher!! Buy NOW...especially helpful during these last few difficult months before summer!

Appropriate for High School level implementation?
I have a friend who had a college professor used a form of WBT and she loved it. In fact, she said that she still remembers much of what he taught. I'm planning on doing it next year with my sophomores.

If you approach it the right way, it works. I've found that if I explain the reasoning behind... Read More
