Neuroscience and teaching: Important lessons for the classroom

FINALLY!!  A article backed by research that addresses the importance of meta-cognition and the brain.  We can no longer deny the implications for education!!
 


It is a teacher's role to change students' brains on a daily basis, writes Wendi Pillars, a member of the Teacher Leaders Network. To do this, teachers must make lessons relevant for students, allow students to make their own connections and experience ownership of their learning, and explore the inquiry process so they are continually developing critical-thinking skills, she writes.
