Smilkstein, Rita
Learning Assistance Review, v6 n1 p24-38 Spr 2001
Describes the author's research on learning and brain activity, which involved more than 5,000 students and faculty members. Explores six stages of learning: (1) preparing to learn; (2) starting to learn; (3) consolidation; (4) branching out; (5) gaining fluency; and (6) continued improving. States that merging educational research with neuroscientific research will help educators develop a more "brain-compatible" curriculum. (Contains 32 references.) (EMH)
