We're Born to Learn: Using the Brain's Natural Learning Process to Create Today's Curriculum. Second Edition
Smilkstein, Rita
This updated edition of the bestselling book on the brain's natural learning process brings new research results and applications in a power-packed teacher tool kit. Rita Smilkstein shows teachers how to create and deliver curricula that help students become the motivated, successful, and natural learners they were born to be. Updated features include: (1) Guidelines for using the six-step Natural Human Learning Process (NHLP) for lesson planning and test preparation; (2) New information on how technology and Internet research affect student learning; and (3) Practical methods for giving all students the tools they need to achieve. The author translates her unique research on students' critical and creative thinking into classroom strategies and sample lesson plans that will help to create a successful learning environment. Building on the content that earned the author an Educator's Award of the Year from the Delta Kappa Gamma International Society, "We're Born to Learn" provides teachers with practical methods for giving all students the metacognitive, motivational, and technological tools they need to take responsibility for their own achievement. [For the first edition, "We're Born to Learn: Using the Brain's Natural Learning Process to Create Today's Curriculum", see ED472688.]
