In easy to understand, engaging language, Jensen provides a basic orientation to the brain and its various systems and explains how they affect learning.

Jensen's message to educators is simple: You have far more influence on students’ brains than you realize...and you have an obligation to take advantage of the incredible revelations science is providing. The revised and updated edition of Teaching with the Brain in Mind helps you do just that.

This book tells how's the brain's functioning and how does it related to educator. It is illustrated, simple, and clear for non-science major teachers/educators. However, it might be too simple for teachers/educators who have science background. It doesn't provide too many references or support but it does give some nice suggestion to teachers/educators.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
