Did you know that playing music at key points during instruction can help "tag" information in the brain and boost recall? Or that when we help students activate prior knowledge to introduce a new idea, we are encouraging new brain cells to connect with old ones in a way that primes the brain to learn more? In this book, Sarah Armstrong, a brain-based learning expert, reveals how we can use best-practice strategies like these to engage students in learning from a physiological perspective-and teach in a way that literally lights up students' brains with activity.
