This Brain Awareness Week support evidence- and research-based teaching in our classrooms by donating to the documentary Grey Matters, a film about teaching the way the brain learns. http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/grey-matters-teaching-the-way-the-brain-learns/x/2765447
Imagine teaching the way the brain learns, instead of developing policies like Common Core, Race to the Top, and No Child Left Behind and hoping they stick.
Learning would look like this: http://vimeo.com/87698540
