Lately, I have been reading about Brain Targeted Teaching.
Brain Target Teaching is a teaching style that utilizes and focuses on what we know about how the brain learns best.
Dr. Mariale Hardiman, out of John Hopkin’s University, identifies six key elements in brain targeted teaching.The six elements are:
- The Emotional Climate
- Physical Environment
- Learning Design
- Teaching for Mastery
- Teaching for Application
- Evaluating Learning
Here is a link to Dr. Hardiman’s site braintargetedteaching.org. I will be going into more detail in upcoming posts, as well as sharing some classroom experiences.
Happy Friday and have a wonderful weekend!
