附註 "This updated book on the brain's natural learning process offers practical methods for teaching all students to take responsibility for their own success"-- Provided by publisher
"In this updated edition of the extraordinary book that linked brain research and the classroom, Smilkstein incorporates all-new research on brain-compatible teaching and the implications of the brain's natural learning process for how teachers can design and deliver effective lesson plans and curriculum. The author's unique research with almost 7,000 students and educators reveals how people experience their own natural learning. In this book Smilkstein breaks down the physiological as well as the emotional development of learning into practitioner-friendly terms well-grounded in research, with special emphasis in this revised edition upon the use of technology in schools; strategies to reach gifted students as well as those who are diagnosed with ADD, ADHD, and autism spectrum disorders; and upon the 7 magic words--"see if you can figure this out"--that lie at the heart of curriculum development to engage all learners"-- Provided by publisher
