DESCRIPTION

"Memory, Recall, the Brain & Learning" provides over 40 proven, practical, and easy to implement activities and 35 organizers to encourage your students to become engaged in the learning process while in your classroom. Brain research has evidenced unprecedented levels of attention in education and learning endeavors. We have come to understand that "learning" is not merely an exercise in storing information for artificially engineered tests. Our interest and intent have evolved to encompass the notions of recall, long-term memory, and applications - not to mention life-long learning habits. 


Our goal in teaching and learning must be to create environments and conditions in which learners are more likely to make greater attempts at processing sufficiently for understanding and application, resulting in increased long-term memory. 


This book seeks to explore in detail a vital aspect of learning and the brain that supports the acquisition of sustained understanding. This book merges brain science research and educational best practice. Two profound works underpin the foundation for the strategies provided - Dr. Barbara Given's work on the natural learning systems of the brain and Marzano, Pickering, and Pollock review of the nine most effective educational strategies leading to student achievement.




READER'S COMMENT

"Brain research can improve student learning - very practical and easy to use.

This book is written in a clear and easy to understand format; and provides easy to use ideas to improve student learning based on brain research. Lots of good examples and practical suggestions to help students learn more effectively. Very helpful to my work with special education middle school students."
