Every teacher should read

Great book!!! It explains the way our brain learn and how teachers can teach effectively.

A book that really helps teachers and students; it works!

Reviewer: Retired superintendent My regional high school staff has used Eric Jensen's suggestions for brain-friendly teaching for years with GREAT results. Hundreds of students who needed more attention to the way they learned best blossomed, became proficient learners (most important), increased their scores on high stakes tests, and graduated to success in college and the world of work. Eric's brain-friendly suggestions are no "fad"; they are one of the best paths to improving student learning in K-12 and even adult programs. I strongly recommend this and Eric's other books to all teachers.

Maximize learning in the classroom

This book covers in laymen's terms how the brain works when it comes to learning. It then takes the facts and helps an instructor use this knowledge to transform their training into a valuable experience. A good read and a great reference to keep coming back to.

The sine qua non of brain-based learning

Just in four years, you already have a much revised new edition! That reflects the pace of the explosion of brain research studies. The outdated Triune Brain Theory is no longer mentioned. We have: new insights on the dynamic interplay of both nature and nurture; stages of learning that responds to the crucial question of "When has a student learned something?"... For the serious student of neuroscience applied to learning, this is one of the best books. It contains so much interesting, useful and up-to-date information. Just look through the detailed Table of Contents. Rewards, motivation, creativity, meaning-making, discipline... are all seen in a new perspective. It gives a biological basis to respecting individual differences and learning styles. This new edition, with additional drawings, illustrations, outlines, tips and boxes of key ideas, makes the book attractive and easier to read. The author is gifted in integrating a lot of research studies and making them relevant and palatable. He has done a great service to all educators and learners. (The first edition is still worth keeping. It contains useful book recommendations for follow-up and other valid materials that have been left out in the revised edition.)

Well-Researched, easy to read, practical

Mr. Jensen has saved me and other teachers the time of gathering together the latest information about the brain, learning and so much more! He has made all this scholarly research accessible and fun to read. I wish the deadwood at my school would at least read this book but I hope they would also use the great ideas in it, too, for the students' sake!
