It describes how to enhance students' memory and test-taking abilities and presents ways to captivate and hold students' attention and encourage their participation and progress.

Following a preface, this book comprises four chapters: (1) Memory, Learning, and Test-Taking Success; (2) Strategies to Captivate Students' Attention; (3) How Stress and Emotion Affect Learning; and (4) Assessment That Builds Dendrites. The book concludes with a Bibliography; Afterword (The Future is Now); About the Author; Related ASCD Resources: The Brain and Learning; and An ASCD Study Guide for Research-Based Strategies to Ignite Student Learning.
