From an award-winning neuroscience researcher with twenty yearsof teaching experience, Multiple Pathways to the StudentBrain uses educator-friendly language to explain how the brainlearns. Steering clear of “neuro-myths,” Dr. JanetZadina discusses multiple brain pathways for learning andprovides practical advice for creating a brain-compatibleclassroom. While there are an abundance of books and workshops that aim tointegrate education and brain science, educators are seldom givenconcrete, actionable advice that makes a difference in theclassroom. Multiple Pathways to the Student Brain bridgesthat divide by providing examples of strategies forday-to-day instruction aligned with the latest brain science. The book explains not only the sensory/motor pathways that arefamiliar to most educators (visual, auditory, and kinesthetic), italso explores the lesser known pathways--reward/survival, language,social, emotional, frontal lobe, and memory/attention--and how theycan be tapped to energize and enhance instruction. Educators are forever searching for new and improved ways toconvey information and inspire curiosity, and research suggeststhat exploiting different pathways may have a major effect onlearning. Multiple Pathways to the Student Brain allowsreaders to see brain science through the eyes of ateacher—and teaching through the eyes of a brainscientist.
