The Education Revolution: How to Apply Brain Science to Improve Instruction and School Climate
Brain research has the power to revolutionize education, but it can be difficult for educators to implement innovative strategies without the proper knowledge or resources. The Education Revolution bridges the gap between neuroscience, psychology, and educational practice. It delivers what educators need: concrete applications of the most current and relevant research that they can use in their classrooms and schools. Readers will find:
• Teaching strategies based on the latest brain research, designed to advance academic performance
• Scientifically sound, solution-focused practices to address the root of negative behaviors
• Approaches to counteract the negative impact of technology on the brain
• Concrete methods to improve school climate
• Model lessons for teachers that demonstrate how to implement the given strategies
Written by Horacio Sanchez, a leading authority on child and adolescent behavior and resiliency, this book shows educators how they can use our growing understanding of brain science to restore students’ desire to learn; improve achievement, behavior and school climate; and revolutionize education.
A Brain-Based Approach to Closing the Achievement Gap provides a superior framework for understanding the achievement gap. The book provides a logical explanation of the complex issues that cause the achievement gap. More importantly, it provides a comprehensive approach to eliminating this significant problem. The framework helps educators modify instruction in order to improve academic performance for all students, as well as designing educational climates that maximize student behavior and academic achievement. This thought provoking approach combines science, research and best practice in the field of education.
