Misleading Picture

I ordered this book for my class, and I was so excited to get it for such a good price, however I was was disappointed when it arrived. The picture of the book says 2nd edition, which is the version I needed. I had previously ordered the wrong version, so I double checked for 2nd edition. I guess I need to read the description, because once I placed my order and then I clicked on the confirmation, it brought me to the first edition. If you are looking for a good read, I'd recommend, but if you need the 2nd edition, I'd recommend buying it somewhere else.

Teaching with the brain in mind

This book is a very quick read with lots of information for those teachers who want to change their teaching style to "brain-based" teaching! Very easy reading-good suggestions to use in the classroom!

Teaching With The Brain In Mind

Fabulous book! I am a teacher and am recommending it to every teacher I know. I think it's a great book for every parent to read! It would be wonderful if "those government people" who make the many many many standards would read this book.

A Must for All Educators

As I started reading material on how to apply the latest brain research to improve instruction, many of the books were difficult to "wade" through. This book was a refreshing surprise! Eric Jensen has taken all the main points of the how to use this research and compiled an user friendly book. It is an easy read and filled with many suggestion that are easily applied in the classroom. I would highly recommend this book (and I do at all the workshops I conduct) to educators at all levels.

Great for teachers, grandparents, and parents; motivational

Teaching with the brain in mind is a great book for teachers who feel that they don't have time for "fun" or activities that involve moving around in their classroom. As more is added to the curriculum, fun things are often taken out. That is where we are missing out on teaching and connecting with kids! Teachers and parents are called on to be more and more creative as they teach new things in a new way. Making a connection with motor skills, rhythms and singing can teach kids in a way that helps them reinforce the basics. They are provided with a knowledge bank that they can call on when they have forgotten a math fact for instance. Jensen says that the words "stick like glue" to notes so when you teach code words to unlock word problems in subtraction, a teacher can teach a song such as "This Old Man" except substitute words about subtraction. Jensen also had some astounding facts about how the brain develops in young children and the connections with motor activities. Great Book. Good opportunity to use it for test-taking strategies, which I did.

It is the best book I, as a teacher, have ever been given.

This book has helped our entire staff understand what we need to do, as teachers, to get our students ready to learn. It unlocks many of the mysteries of why we use specific brain-friendly strategies. I am using several of the strategies in my classroom and also sharing the ideas of why I am using them with my students. They, too, are interested in how the brain works and what they can do to become better learners.It is exciting stuff and seemingly we are only at the beginning of understanding how to effectively use brain research to better our teaching strategies!
