Differentiation and the Brain: How Neuroscience Supports the Learner-Friendly Classroom (2nd Edition) by David A. Sousa and Carol Ann Tomlinson. Facilitated by Mary Brandon, Gifted Teacher and Consultant.
This book study is an opportunity for you to reflect through reading and written response if certain curricular, instructional, and assessment choices are effective in light of current educational neuroscience research findings. The authors emphasize teaching smarter, not harder, while making suggestions on how to better meet the needs of your increasingly diverse classrooms. The book will be divided into eight reading assignments with choices of response-prompts which you will post in Google Classroom. This will allow others in the study to comment or ask questions.
As with past book studies, this study affords you the comfort of your own space, in your own time, with no substitute plans to prepare, and earns 15 hours toward your Gifted Hours. Invite a colleague to join you so you can do it together.
One hour of college credit is available through Ashland University; a one to two page reflection on the book is required to received credit. Contact Kris Dobbelaere (email@example.com) for more details.
