In this groundbreaking work, Cram and Germinario present brain-based research in the language of laymen. More importantly, they show how administrators and teachers can use those findings to improve schools. This volume examines the mental models upon which schools operate, and how they blend (or compete) with the emerging frameworks for brain-compatible teaching and learning.
