Explains the latest brain research in plain language and shows teachers how to use insights from that research to create a high- achievement K-college classroom. A framework of principles for teaching thinking is linked with Gardner's multiple intelligences theory and Goleman's emotional intelligence theory. Offers many activities, suggestions for group learning, and full-page graphic idea organizers and examples of their use. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
