Prepping the Brain: Easy and Effective Ways to Get Students Ready for Learning
Crystal Springs Books
Teachers do not have to be neuroscientists to design brain-friendly lessons for their students- and they do not have to change their curriculum either. This resource is packed with strategies and activities that teachers will refer to often as they help their students: (1) build background knowledge; (2) Activate prior knowledge; (3) process and consolidate information; (4) make meaning out of the curriculum; and (5) store content in their long -term memories and then retrieve it easily. This book also describes how to create a safe, nonthreatening and inviting classroom environment; how to help students connect and bond with each other, and even how to exercise, feed, and water the brain. [Contributors to this book included: Linda Allen, LeAnn Nicklesen, and Yvette Zgonc.]
