Description

When students repeatedly lose track of directions or take a long time to solve problems, it’s easy for teachers to see the distracted or off-task behavior, but not always to see the root of the problem. And often the same child who has an underdeveloped skill may have an opposing but hidden strength: a slow processor of information may also be a deep thinker.

Teaching to Every Kid’s Potential┬áis an invitation to teachers to improve the learning in their classrooms, one student at a time, using practical, evidence- based strategies.

Focusing on five big ideas from neuroscience, the author shows how to apply them to build on the strengths of students. Each chapter unpacks the science to show how gifts and talents can arise to compensate for neural processing issues; and shows how to make small but powerful adjustments to classroom practice so that kids’ gifts can emerge.
