How to Differentiate Instruction in a Brain-Friendly Classroom
Differentiation is the core of the art and science of teaching. However, even masters of this art may not be effective in the classroom if they don’t have a basic understanding of how the human brain grows, develops and learns. To successfully implement differentiation strategies, educators must design and orchestrate a brain-compatible environment. Think Big, Start Small pares down the vast field of neuroscience and provides educators with the brain basics needed to create a classroom that enhances learning.
