Book Review

  • Eric Jensen (1998). Teaching with the Brain in Mind. Alexandria, Virginia: Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development.
    Reviewed by Karen Goodnough

In this issue, Goodnough provides insights and new readings to Eric Jensen's 1998 treatise, Teaching with the Brain in Mind. According to Goodnough, "... the book interweaves theory and practice, resulting in a very informative account that serves as an ideal starting point for teachers and other educators who want to learn more about how the brain works and the potential implications of this knowledge for teaching and learning." To Goodnough, "... reading this book will provide the “know-how” for fostering active learning that recognizes the uniqueness of each learner’s brain".
