document Brain Science for Educators and Parents


This introduction to brain science is specifically designed for preservice and inservice K-12 teachers, for teachers of these teachers, and for parents. Here are two important and unifying questions addressed throughout the book:

  1. What should preservice K-12 teachers, inservice K-12 teachers, and parents know about brain science?

  2. How should K-12 teachers be using their knowledge of brain science, both to improve their teaching and also to help their students gain grade level and subject area appropriate knowledge of brain science?

The goal of this 10-chapter book is to help you develop and understand answers that fit your needs as an educator and/or parent. Each chapter is relatively self-contained, and ends with a section on References and Resources related to that chapter. While most of the items in References and Resources are specifically cited within the chapter, occasionally one will fall into the category of “additional suggested resources.” Most entries are followed by a brief statement designed to help the reader link the reference content to the chapter content. The book ends with a final section on Videos for Brain Science for Educators and Parents. This lists all of the videos referenced in the book, organized by the chapter in which they appeared.
