  1. Research-Based Strategies to Ignite Student Learning: Insights from Neuroscience and the Classroom, Revised and Expanded Edition

    Thanks to unprecedented advances in brain science, we know more about the brain today than ever before. But what does that science tell us about how we learn? How can we capture the power of neuroscience research so that it benefits our students? Judy Willis and Malana Willis answer these questions with clarity and insight, translating recent research on the brain and learning into understandable concepts and practical strategies to use across the curriculum, spanning all grade levels from Foundation to post-secondary. Willis and Willis describe how the brain converts a vast amount of sensory input into long-term memory and durable understanding - and how educators can use this knowledge to guide students to more successful experiences in school and beyond.

But how can educators make sure they exert their influence astutely and sensitively, navigating education’s priorities and pressures while keeping their work focused on the mission? This thought-provoking book helps readers navigate this tricky terrain, introducing four ‘forces’, or levels, of influence and explaining how educators can use them to support one another’s practice and push for positive outcomes for all learners.
