Brain-Friendly Strategies for the Inclusion Classroom: Insights from a Neurologist and Classroom Teacher

Synopsis

Many teachers in regular classrooms feel unprepared to teach students with learning disabilities. Fortunately, brain research has confirmed that strategies benefiting learners with special challenges are suited for engaging and stimulating all learners. This book will help teachers
• Understand how the brain learns and the technologies that reveal this process.
• Implement strategies that are compatible with students' individual learning styles and honor their multiple intelligences.
• Improve the focus of students with attention disorders and help them gain the confidence and skills they need to develop goal-oriented behaviors.
• Implement strategic review, study, and test preparation strategies that will allow students to retain information and connect it with future learning. Using strategies that align with research on how people's brains function, teachers can engage all students as individuals and help them reach their maximum potential with joy and confidence.
