Coming to Our Senses: Incorporating Brain Research Findings into Classroom Instruction
Wilmes, Barbara; Harrington, Lauren; Kohler-Evans, Patty; Sumpter, David
Education, v128 n4 p659-666 Sum 2008
The following paper addresses the responses that the learner has to changes in the learning environment that enhance instruction. While theorists have supported the notion that instruction embedded in sensory-filled, brain-based and hands-on activities, classrooms remain unchanged in many, if not most interactions. What can we do to wake up teachers and administrators to make these modifications? We believe as educators we must "come to our senses" to bring about best quality learning environments. The following section of this paper supports why we have come to the conclusion that sensory and brain based teaching strategies can no longer be left behind.
