Brain-based Learning and Teaching

Brain-based learning is essential in our teaching today, particularly with all of the added societal stressors and academic demands.  I wanted to share this article with you (thank you for pointing me to this, Dr. Logue!). It is a quick, yet informative read that should be in every teacher's repertoire of educational thoughts. Please share thoughts and questions in the comment section below.

  1. Nice article! Isn't it funny how we try to find ourselves and our classrooms when we read (making connections). We sing and dance throughout the day, we use manipulatives and give feedback. My kids share their writing and strive to meet individual goals. We have two recesses and PE twice a week (wish it was every day!). I was reading a blog where the teacher said they don't get any specials. That principal needs to read your article!

  2. Love the article! I am going to print it off and take it to school to share for our collaboration time! We are thankful to get 1 recess a day for 30 mins and PE once a week for 45 minutes. We used to get 2 PE and 2 Music and Art periods but with $$$ cut backs - that is one of the first places they started.

  3. I found this just the other day, and I love it! I've been excited about brain based learning, and this sums up the main points quite nicely!
