Teaching with the Brain in Mind

Teaching with the Brain in Mind - Eric Jensen

By using persuasion and a seeminly humble view on his own authority (as a PHD student), Eric Jensen presents a well-researched text with richly peppered well-written chapters relaying the common theme of how to keep a child's brain in mind while teaching. Students experience stressers, but also are actively building consciousness at school. This book is an important piece to keep alongside works that now emphasize trauma-informed styles of teaching, a style hopeful in reaching students from broader socio-economic backgrounds.


In the past I had been interested in Workplace studies. Here is a list of a few books and articles on this topic.
