Description: A dynamic, brain-based strategy for closing the achievement gap in schoolsThis book shows how educators at all levels can develop expertise in "learning variation"-understanding how all kind of minds learn-and apply this knowledge to improve classroom instruction and close the achievement gap. The authors reveal how using what we know about learning differences with a focus on discovering kids' learning strengths (not just deficits) can lead to success in school for those students who often find it elusive. The book will specifically address how school leaders can incorporate this knowledge at the school and classroom level through various professional development strategies. Provides a synthesis-in laymen's terms-of the latest research from neuroscience, cognitive science, and child and adolescent development as it relates to learning Includes practical strategies for accommodating a wider array of learning differences in a classroom Shows how teachers and others can help students succeed in various academic and content areas and acquire necessary skillsIn addition, this book includes discussion questions and online videos.
