Dr. Mariale Hardiman – Connecting Brain Research with Effective Teaching: The Brain Targeted Teaching Model ScarecrowEducation, 2003
Brain Targeted Teaching makes sense! What Can Teachers Do? Brain-Targeted Teaching™encourages teachers to deliberately plan for positive emotional connections within the framework of a specific unit of study, referred to as a learning unit. Such connections include specific activities that will connect the students emotionally to the content. The infusion of the visual and performing arts is an effective way to tap into children’s emotional response systems to enhance learning and should be included within the activities of every learning unit.
