A Biological Brain in a Cultural Classroom
Enhancing Cognitive and Social Development Through Collaborative Classroom Management
- Robert Sylwester - University of Oregon, Eugene, USA
Behaviour Management | School Counselling
`Should be required reading for students of education, teachers, and administrators. I would encourage educators for form book study groups to read, study, reflect, and apply what is found here' - Jerry Tollefson, Principal, Marquette Elementary School, Madison
Using research findings from the cognitive neurosciences and a view of the classroom as an ecological system of checks and balances, the author takes the reader into the modern K-12 classroom, reaffirming his belief that students should collaborate with their teachers in classroom management decisions whenever possible.
"Sylwester’s book offers research, theoretical perspectives, and suggested activities, all of which easily foster reflection on practices related to classroom management, this significant dimension of teaching."
