Learning about Learning. GEMS Teacher's Guide.
Barber, Jacqueline; And Others
This unit of study is part of the Great Explorations in Math and Science (GEMS) series produced by the Lawrence Hall of Science. Students investigate learning from a variety of perspectives. They are guided in an exploration of questions such as: how do we learn?; how can we help or hinder that learning process?; do animals learn in a similar way?; how as a community of humans do we learn things that are important to our survival?; how do our brains get information? and does the actual structure of our brains change with learning? The unit includes 10 activities, each of which has preparation details and the script and procedures for the class activity. (DDR)
