In this unique resource, Diane Connell applies insights from brain-based research to the classroom. Working from the premise that teachers tend to teach in much the same way that they learn, Connell provides questionnaires that instructors identify their learning preferences, including:
• left-brain/right-brain preference
• multiple intelligence profile
• information-processing preferences
• learning style
• emotional intelligence
She then helps instructors expand their teaching repertoire by providing classroom-tested strategies that engage all kinds of learners. In addition, Connell provides surveys and checklists so students can discover their learning preferences. She also offers strategies that help students work with their strengths and improve the areas they are weak in. Complete with research-based suggestions for organizing and managing classrooms so all students can learn and thrive.
