“Finally a user-friendly book to help teachers of all grades! The book simplifies the complexities of the brain, enabling educators to teach effectively in the 21st century classroom. I highly recommend that faculty read this book and invite Kimberly to visit their school; it will be one of the most meaningful and productive professional development opportunities a school can provide to their faculty.”

In this book, Transforming Your Teaching: Practical Classroom Strategies Informed by Cognitive Neuroscience, Kimberly Carraway, a leading educator and “teacher of teachers,” not only summarizes the most essential principles of how the brain learns, but also unpacks hundreds of ready-to-use applications of research in the classroom, translating the science into teaching strategies and learning activities that optimize student outcomes.
