Our brains work best under optimal conditions we think more creatively, we absorb information quickly, and we produce better work. So how do we create those conditions in a classroom setting to help all of our students achieve? This guide shows teachers how to use simple research-supported strategies in any lesson to improve students' engagement, productivity, and capacity to learn. Among the brain-boosting tools teachers can use tomorrow are innovative graphic organizers and note-taking techniques, review activities that help students memorize content-area information, questioning tips for improving students' abilities think critically, and practical ways to differentiate lessons for all learners. For use with Grades 3-8.
