Dr. Willis is a unique blend of common sense, humor and brains, a rarity being both a "brain" doctor, and a classroom teacher. With this book I have my own neurologist/teacher in my classroom. --Surprise Your Brain: Buy this book! J. Brown
This book made me rethink the way I teach. The book gives you an awareness of how the brain works and how the brain remembers. I highly recommend it. --Great Book for Teachers - Connecticut, USA
This book is amazing! It clarifies how the brain works when a person learns, and it shares many ways in which learning can be enhanced. I wrote all over in mine, and I'm ordering a copy for my principal. THANK YOU, Dr. Willis! --BUY THIS BOOK! E bev
From the Author
Research-Based Strategies to Ignite Student Learning is the first book for educators written by an author who is both a neurologist and a classroom teacher. Dr. Willis used her neurology expertise to examine the past two decades of learning-centered brain research. Using her background and experience as a clinical neurologist and neuroscience researcher, she sifted through the abundance of neuroimaging and brain mapping information. She assessed what information was both valid and relevant to education. She then employed her training and experience as a classroom teacher to provide strategies for implementing the best of this research in the classroom. She brings this knowledge to life in a comprehensive and accessible style.
Teachers will be introduced to strategies that will work in their own classrooms. These strategies will help teachers improve student memory, learning, and test-taking success. Teachers will also learn how to captivate and hold students' attention.
Dr. Willis takes a reader-friendly approach to neuroscience, describing instructional strategies that are adaptable for grades K through 12. Through statistical data, individual student stories, and her own experiences using these strategies with elementary and middle school students, Dr. Willis provides teachers with a wealth of information they will want to start using in their classrooms before finishing the book.
The book includes learning strategies that have come from research about how stress and emotion affect learning. Willis describes assessment techniques that not only assess authentically and with diversity, but also teach while assessing. This book will become one that teachers will return to again and again to pick up new strategies to make their own.

This is the book i have been searching for. My children in grades 2 and 5 were losing motivation for schoolwork each year. This book gives me so many ways to help my children understand the concepts beyond the facts with fun activities we can do at home
As an educational therapist and a veteran classroom teacher , I found this book offers detailed information about the neurology of how children learn, and also contains a deep understanding of what happens in a classroom.
This book is an invaluable tool for parents, and the professionals who work with children in educational settings. It will help parents understand how their child learns best.
