Why The Brain Matters : A Teacher Explores Neuroscience, Paperback / softback Book

Why The Brain Matters : A Teacher Explores Neuroscience Paperback / softback

Part of the Corwin Ltd series


Educational neuroscience is one of the most hotly debated areas of research and is often misrepresented with grand claims for what it means for teaching and learning.

Is each side of the brain responsible for different types of mental activity?

Can listening to Mozart improve long-term brain function?

Can neuroscience help with reading, or student motivation?

In this book, teacher, education consultant and researcher Jon Tibke fact-checks prevailing 'neuromyths' by shining a light on what scientific research is truly relevant for the classroom and exploring the current limits of our understanding.

Evidence-informed and complemented by thought-provoking practical tasks, this book will challenge readers to think critically about the human body's most complex organ.
