A powerful guide for applying brain research for more effective instructionThe Brain-Targeted Teaching Model for 21st Century Schools serves as a bridge between research and practice by providing a cohesive, proven, and usable model of effective instruction. Compatible with other professional development programs, this model shows how to apply relevant research from educational and cognitive neuroscience to classroom settings through a pedagogical framework. The model’s six components are:(1) Establish the emotional connection to learning(2) Develop the physical learning environment(3) Design the learning experience(4) Teach for the mastery of content, skills, and concepts(5) Teach for the extension and application of knowledge(6) Evaluate learningMariale Hardiman presents this model with the educator in mind and offers practical steps for using it to inform instruction and teach 21st century skills. Her valuable road map will help you achieve improved outcomes for your students and better collaborative professional practices in your school.
