The Art of Changing the Brain: Enriching the Practice of Teaching by Exploring the Biology of Learning

Image of The Art of Changing the Brain: Enriching the Practice of Teaching by Exploring the Biology of Learning
Author: James E. Zull
Publisher: Stylus Publishing (2002)
Binding: Paperback, 263 pages
Summary:
Neuroscience tells us that the products of the mind -- thought, emotions, artistic creation -- are the result of the interactions of the biological brain with our senses and the physical world: in short, that thinking and learning are the products of a biological process. This realization, that learning actually alters the brain by changing the number and strength of synapses, offers a powerful foundation for rethinking teaching practice and one's philosophy of teaching. James Zull invites teachers in higher education or any other setting to accompany him in his exploration of what scientists can tell us about the brain and to discover how this knowledge can influence the practice of teaching. He describes the brain in clear non-technical language and an engaging conversational tone, highlighting its functions and parts and how they interact, and always relating them to the real world of the classroom and his own evolution as a teacher. "The Art of Changing the Brain" is grounded in the practicalities and challenges of creating effective opportunities for deep and lasting learning, and of dealing with students as unique learners.

Author: Yasu-Hiko Tohsaku
Publisher: McGraw-Hill Humanities/Social Sciences/Languages (2003)
Binding: Hardcover, 592 pages
Summary:
Yookoso!, meaning welcome in Japanese, is the first volume of a two-volume series for beginning Japanese courses.
