Multiple Pathways to the Student Brain: Energizing and Enhancing Instruction, from a neuroscience researcher and former classroom teacher, helps educators steer clear of "neuro-myths" and explains in teacher-friendly language how the brain learns. Award-winning researcher and presenter Janet Zadina explains the multiple pathways to the brain--not just visual, auditory, and kinesthetic (which all fall under sensory-motor), but also the language, reward/survival, social, emotional, memory/attention, and frontal lobe pathways.
While there has been a proliferation of books and workshops that aim to translate brain science into classroom practice, teachers are rarely shown how to implement the information they learn. Educators are forever searching for new and improved ways to convey information and inspire curiosity, and research suggests that exploiting different pathways may have a major effect on learning. Multiple Pathways to the Student Brain: Energizing and Enhancing Instruction allows readers to see brain science through the eyes of a teacher—and teaching through the eyes of a brain scientist.
Multiple Pathways to the Student Brain: Energizing and Enhancing Instruction is the perfect resource for new and veteran teachers everywhere to help them improve the classroom environment. By better understanding how students learn and absorb different types of information, teachers can find better ways to connect with their students so that their students have a greater chance at succeeding.
