Practical strategies to integrate brain-based learning into your classroom as easily as clicking your heels!

Through the clever analogy of The Wizard of Oz, Marilee Sprenger provides invaluable information about cognitive research and shares simple tactics for implementing these ideas in the classroom. Learn proven tools for coping with "the Lion's stress, the Tin Woodsman's need for emotional intelligence, and the Scarecrow's desire for higher level thinking."

This user-friendly guide effectively discusses expert findings about brain growth, structure, and functions to help teachers and administrators foster a love of learning in all students. By creating an enriched, brain-compatible environment as outlined in this book, educators can effectively counter such existing negative influences as stress, sleep deprivation, poor nutrition, and a genetic predisposition to disorders in order to cultivate successful lifelong learning.

Key features include:

  • Straightforward discussion about memory pathways, learning styles, and multiple intelligences
  • Extensive examples from real school situations where brain research has been applied
  • Tactics for immediately putting brain-based information to work in the classroom
  • Concrete techniques for using music, teams, rapport building, and brain-state changes to stimulate student learning
