A powerful guide for applying brain research for more effective instruction

The Brain-Targeted Teaching Model for 21st-Century Schools serves as a bridge between research and practice by providing a cohesive, proven, and usable model of effective instruction. Compatible with other professional development programs, this model shows how to apply educational and cognitive neuroscience principles into classroom settings through a pedagogical framework. The model’s six components are:

(1) Establish the emotional connection to learning 
(2) Develop the physical learning environment
(3) Design the learning experience 
(4) Teach for the mastery of content, skills, and concepts 
(5) Teach for the extension and application of knowledge
(6) Evaluate learning

In The Press

"Few educators bring Dr. Hardiman’s ability, experience, and scholarliness to the increasingly rich exchange between educators and neuroscientists. She has succinctly synthesized a large body of information into a must-read for educators, researchers, and anyone else interested in how neuroscience and cognitive science can make a difference in the classroom."
