The Instructional Leader and the Brain : Using Neuroscience to Inform Practice Paperback
This book will provide information and insight to educational leaders that will enhance their ability to lead, guide, and support the classroom teacher.
These insights will be provided through an examination of five neuroscience principles.
Readers will be given opportunities not only to find overt links to how these principles unfold in classrooms, staff rooms, and board rooms, but will also be encouraged to find connections to their own unique contexts (both professionally and personally) along the way.
Each of the five principles presented will include information about the neuroscience behind the principle.
Focus questions and real stories will be used to clarify the context of each principle.
These anecdotes will include examples of how we see and experience these principles in action.
Specific strategies of how the principle might be exemplified in a K-12 school setting will be included.
At certain points throughout the book, content questions will be posed to assist the reader in their own processing and understanding of this complex material.
