Making Connections: Teaching and the Human Brain.
Caine, Renate Nummela; Caine, Geoffrey
This book adds to the growing body of knowledge and research suggesting that educators need to move beyond simplistic, narrow approaches to teaching and learning. In Part I, "Accessing the Brain's Potential," current educational practices are examined in light of critical findings of brain researchers. In Part II, "Facts and Theories about the Human Brain," topics, theories, and models of brain functions that seem to address current issues in education and provide implications for curriculum restructuring and design are considered. Major aspects of research are reorganized for the purpose of eliciting a useful and practical set of general principles. In Part III, "Brain-Based Schooling," elements of instruction that are believed to cause students to use the brain's capacity more fully to learn are discussed. Citations number 218. (RH)
