"Teaching with the Brain in Mind" is an excellent beginner's book for those interested in brain-based learning. Jensen offers an easily understandable look at the parts of the brain and the way that people learn.
What might have been an intimidating topic has benefitted from being designed a graphic designer who knows how to use space, font, and page size to advantage. The layout includes plenty of white space and visual cues. The headers are large and clear and the font is a nice size. The black and white diagrams and sketches are both useful and appropriate.
This book is a good introduction to the brain for laymen, Psy and ED 101 students.
I now have scientific reasons to give any confrontational folk for building activity-rich, humor-filled adaptations of statistics and consumer math. It is a must-read, especially for science teachers who are frustrated with unfocused student behavior in the classroom, and non-completion of assignments (school or home). It's an attitude adjustment, but hard planning work in unfamiliar territory will pay off!!
The basic message of Jensen's book is that we have a much greater ability to affect the learning of students than we realize. Some of the many topics covered in his book include how to prepare children for school, how to motivate students to participate, how to influence emotional states, how to design smarter schools, and how to enhance memory and critical thinking skills.
Teaching with the Brain in Mind was one of four books I was assigned for an Understanding the Learner class that I am taking through Columbia International University. I would not have chosen to read this book had it not been required reading, however, reading the book has definitely made me reflect on how I have instructed students and perhaps what I should have done differently. Today I would attempt to find ways to bring more kinesthetics and music into the classroom. I would also do a better job of inviting guest speakers and challenging the students to learn about and further serve the local community. I will need to promote these kinds of activities amongst the teachers I work with.
My final analysis: I think few would call Jensen's book a gripping read, but it is clear and will provide you some practical insights.
