Q & A Collections: Brain-Based Learning

laobc_Silhouette_of_a_brain.png


I'll begin posting new questions and answers in late August, and during the summer will be sharing thematic posts bringing together responses on similar topics from the past two years. You can see those collections from the first year here.

Next week, though, I'll be taking a break from posting these collections and will be sharing a special interview I'm doing with Adam Grant, author of Give and Take: A Revolutionary Approach to Success, and how his work can be applied in schools.

Today's theme is on brain-based learning. Previous themes have been:

Student Motivation

Implementing The Common Core

Teaching Reading & Writing

Teaching Math and Science

I'll be spending the summer organizing questions and answers for the next school year, and there is always room for more!

You can send questions to me at lferlazzo@epe.org.When you send it in, let me know if I can use your real name if it's selected or if you'd prefer remaining anonymous and have a pseudonym in mind.

You can also contact me on Twitter at @Larryferlazzo.

Anyone whose question is selected for this weekly column can choose one free book from a variety of education publishers.

And, now, here's a list of all my posts related to related to brain-based learning:

Dr. David Dockterman, Renate N. Caine, Ph.D., and Kevin D. Washburn, (Ed.D) are contributed their responses here.

Teachers as "Brain Changers"

In this post, I shared some of my thoughts, a guest response from well-known author and researcher David A. Sousa, and comments left by readers.

I hope you've found this summary useful and, again, keep those questions coming!
