Brain Science for Principals: What School Leaders Need to Know features leadership of learning from the perspective of recent findings of educational neuroscience. Each chapter explores a question related to learning and offers practical suggestions for principals. Divided into six sections, each of the 24 short chapters can stand alone or the book can be read cover-to-cover. The opening section explains how understanding brain neuroplasticity changes belief in fixed intelligence. A partial list of subjects explored in the book includes neurogenesis, neurodiversity, memory, brain fitness, the emotional connection, effects of stress, poverty, embodied cognition, movement, mindset, ELL issues, multitasking, the role of the arts, ages and stages of the brain, emotional intelligence, creating resonance, and maintaining mindfulness. The conclusion underscores how neuroscientifically literate principals can enhance learning and advance social justice. Writers of the book anticipate a future when educational neuroscience findings about learning become part of the education of every principal and school leader. Knowing how the brain works is the key to the future of education.

First and foremost, and most inclusively, anyone fascinated by thinking and learning about connections between brain research and writing should read The Write Mind for Every Classroom: How to Connect Brain Science and Writing Across the Disciplines. Teachers of writing across a wide range of grade levels will find this book useful, especially those teaching adolescents. The information and activities are designed for those teaching across secondary and post-secondary content areas. As writing becomes increasingly central across all content areas as a result of both federal and state mandates such as the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), this book will be useful to all teachers of adolescents. College and university professors will find this book useful in helping to prepare today’s pre-service teachers. Literacy coaches, principals, and mentor/lead teachers will find much of value, as will educators involved in teacher learning groups. As brain-based education enters the national spotlight it becomes increasingly important for educators at all levels to become intelligent consumers of brain-based claims that have a potentially far-reaching impact on student learning.

Our Brain Book is an engaging, approachable book that helps children and adults understand how their brains work as we humans interact. Social Emotional Learning concepts and human emotions are sometimes difficult to understand and apply. Our Brain Book helps take away some of this mystery with fun, anatomy-based science. Through the tremendous hard work of pioneering researchers and educational leaders, Social Emotional Learning tenants have entered the mainstream culture and have become an important pillar for most all educational facilities. Adlerian constructs, authoritative leadership, and classroom leadership tools have been proven for student growth. Our Brain Book was developed for students, teachers, principals, parents to help provide approachable, easy-to-understand connection between the physiological brain science to the emotional experience of human communication and connection. It helps the child (and any human) understand the science of their feelings and actions while explaining to the leader, teacher, or parent how to help with co-regulation. It creates a common understanding and framework to discuss our interactions and reactions, and how to make them more positive and productive. We hope it helps every person and their community in our collective desires to self-regulate and be our better self in stressful situations.

This book is a must read for anyone in close proximity to middle schoolers. Using actual events from the lives of real teenagers, the authors (a middle school principal and a child neuropsychologist) combine perspectives to provide an engaging, light-hearted journey into the adventures and misadventures of newly-minted teens. First, the authors put to rest some long-standing misconceptions about teenage behavior. However bizarre they appear to adults, teenagers emotional reactions and their behaviors can no longer be explained solely by raging hormones. Using the stories as a backdrop, the authors provide emerging findings from developmental psychology and the neurosciences to explain why young teens do the things they do. The developing brain of a young teenager produces thoughts and feelings that are vastly different from an adult. Knowing this helps us to appreciate and accept the unique challenges they face."

A research-based book addressing brain-based learning and how secondary age students best learn and how teachers can best teach to meet those needs. American public education is on life support like never before. Why? The shift from LEARNING to standardized testing, ticking boxes for administrators, and watering down curricula are some of the reasons. This synthesis of brain-based research emphasizes how students best learn. It is NOT a checklist, it is a strategy that empowered teachers can utilize to improve student learning. But, knowing how teens think enables teachers to know HOW TEENS best LEARN. --Dr. Richard NeSmith What Educators and Parents are Saying! Eric Demoncheaux, FRSC, Teaching Professional l Discoverer of the 'Nitrite Effect' l Founder & Editor Science Teachers Network. ence Teacher Network I am posting this note to thank Dr. Richard NeSmith for helping me know more about what goes through teenagers' minds and grow into a better teacher. Dr. NeSmith's 28-plus years teaching experience and careful study of biology, developmental and cognitive psychology make him one of the best experts in the field. His book explains the difficulties students have learning at school and reflects on how to overcome them, promoting a better understanding of the changes going on in teenagers' lives as well as an elementary understanding of what causes pain points in the brain of the adult-in-the-making. Above all, Dr. NeSmith reminds us that teenagers are individuals, with their personality, strengths, weaknesses and their ways of showing love and concern. The book has been carefully researched and will make you aware of the cognitive-emotional interactions going on inside the mind of preadolescents to improve your teaching strategies. It is such a privilege to teach and take teenagers from childhood to adulthood. Whether you are a parent, a teacher, or a school administrator you will find in this book strategies to facilitate learning and encourage lifelong learning. #teaching #cognitivescience #neuropsychology ​Everyone that teaches teens in someway needs this book! From teachers to school leaders and parents, TeachingTeenagers gives an intriguing look into the why behind what teens do. I wish I had this book many years ago at the start of my teaching career! Dr. NeSmith makes hard-hitting, research-supported, statements on curriculum, community,teaching and learning that expose what so many of us know needs to be changed in schools and, even offers a call to action. He has curated what we know about teens to equip us to advocate in our communities that there is a better way to "do school." This book is an exciting manifesto for anyone that wants to see a needed revolution in education. --Dr. Toni Hull, Middle School Principal, Department of Education Teaching Fellow, Las Cruces,New Mexico (27-year veteran teacher/principal) "As a parent and educator, Dr. NeSmith has a wealth of knowledge and research to share with us all. In this book, What We Know, he has provided a detailed guide for administrators, teachers, and parents who strive to learn more about the adolescent experience in education. This book would be beneficial in a preparation programs for teachers and administrators." --Dr. Ellie Baldwin, former Chair of Teacher Education,Regis University, Denver, CO "I think that this book should be read by parents and teachers. This reading has enlightened me to a new observation of students and their ways of learning. Thank you for sharing this with me as I will cherish it and refer back to it regularly to help me in the future!" --Tara LaRocca, Biology Teacher, Plaquemine High School, Plaquemine, Louisiana (6th-year as a teacher). "I think this should be required reading for every parent, teacher, and administrator. I love that it addresses so many of the problems within our schools today and also offers practical, common-sense solutions." --Dana Fideline, Inola Public Schools, Inola,Oklahoma (12th year as teacher) "After teaching 19 years in a middle school setting, one would think there is not a lot to learn about how adolescents learn, but I was wrong. Dr. NeSmith's book, What We Know about Teaching Teenagers! A Guide for Parents, Teachers,and Administrators, not only provided copious amounts of current scientific research about how students learn, what affects their learning potential, but also how adults in their life can help them become the person they want to become. Often when the parent of a struggling student is contacted, many parents are at a loss of what to do to help their child and seek advice from the school. I appreciate the many suggestions teachers or administrators can give to those parents to help positively impact the developing teenage brain." --Julie Allender, Teacher of 7th & 8th grade Integrated Science, DeAnza Middle School, Ontario, CA "When I think of middle schoolers I think of them as quirky and that's why I love them. When I attempt to provide words of conciliation to mothers of teens the best advice I can give it that they are works in progress. Richard captures these sentiments in a well-researched study of the teen and his/her quirks and habits and elaborates on strategies to improve the educational climate for ALL in a structured solution to teachers, parents AND administrators." --Mary Howard, Sixth Grade Teacher. Master Teacher and New York State Teacher of the year finalist. Grand Island Central School District, Grand Island, New York

As a result of the research taking place in cognitive science, neuroscience, the human genome project, physics and pharmacology, we are in the midst of a knowledge explosion. Never before have we had the potential for increasing our success with a wider range of students; knowing how students learn will inevitably lead us to more effective ways of teaching. In this groundbreaking work, Cram and Germinario present brain-based research in the language of laymen. More importantly, they show how administrators and teachers can use those findings to improve schools. This volume examines the mental models upon which schools operate, and how they blend (or compete) with the emerging frameworks for brain-compatible teaching and learning.
