''As an introduction to brain-compatible learning, this book highlights some important findings of recent brain research in an easy-to-read manner.''
—Andrea F. Rosenblatt, Associate Professor, Barry University

Harness the transformative power of brain-based learning!

Thoroughly updated and revised, this best-selling book by brain expert Eric Jensen explores the key features of brain-based teaching and the most recent research on how the brain learns. Educators will learn about the parts of the brain, what constitutes solid brain research, the differences between boys’ and girls' brains, and what types of activities can build retention.

The author presents a reader-friendly text with clear, understandable artwork to reinforce the concepts of brain-based learning. Also included are brain-compatible activities to enhance readers' retention, a complete brain glossary, and a section on the importance of action research.

This easy-to-read book is ideal for educators new to the concepts of brain-compatible learning and is organized into three simple, practical units, covering:

Background information to provide educators with a solid foundation in brain research
Seven principles of teaching based on essential brain concepts
Next steps to put the research and principles into practice
For both novice and veteran educators, this must-have guide provides an opportunity to make a positive, significant, and lasting difference in the way all students learn!

In 1981, Jensen cofounded SuperCamp, the nation first and largest brain-compatible learning program, now with over 50,000 graduates. He has since written Teaching with the Brain in Mind, Brain-Based Learning, Deeper Learning, Arts with the Brain in Mind, Enriching the Brain, and 21 other books on learning and the brain. A leader in the brain-based movement, Jensen has made over 45 visits to neuroscience labs and interacts with countless neuroscientists. He was the founder of the Learning Brain EXPO and has trained educators and trainers for 25 years worldwide in this field. He is deeply committed to making a positive, significant, lasting difference in the way we learn.
