The new, Third Edition of How the Brain Learns continues to focus on helping educators turn research on brain functioning into practical classroom strategies. This revised edition includes information on how the brain processes information and how this helps students learn, tips on maximizing student retention using "down time," and such familiar pedagogy from previous editions as the Practitioner's Corner, Key Points to Ponder, and pre- and post-assessments to measure the reader's knowledge. New to the third edition is: Updated information on the Information Processing Model to reflect newer terminology and understandings about memory systems Updated and exciting new research about language acquisition and how the brain learns to read An expanded chapter on thinking skills including the recently revised version of Bloom's Taxonomy More examples of how emotions influence learning and memory New Practitioner's Corners An updated resource section that includes additional books and Internet sites More primary sources for those who wish to review the actual research studies
