The Education Revolution: How to Apply Brain Science to Improve Instruction and School Climate The Education Revolution is a timely book because it takes relevant findings in neuroscience and bridges the gap between brain science and education. The book illustrates how discoveries in neuroscience can be directly used to modify instruction and improve school climates to advance academic achievement and student behavior. The Education Revolution not only provides a clear explanation of relevant findings in neuroscience but also provides guidance through lesson plans that illustrate how the science can be incorporated into classroom management and instruction. The practical application of neuroscience illustrates that it is time for every teacher to join the Education Revolution!
"Horacio Sanchez combines expertise in education, psychology, and neuroscience with extensive teaching experience and extraordinary insight into what makes us all behave the way we do. If we follow his expert advice in this book, a genuine Education Revolution is truly possible--one that reveals the greatest learner each of us can be. Our best hope for the future is having each youth learn and live up to his full potential. This is a revolution we all need."
