NTPA Book Club
September 30 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT
Join the NTPA book club for our September book, Uncommon Sense Teaching: Practical Insights in Brain Science to Help Students Learn by Barbara Oakley and Beth Rogowsky.
Neuroscientists and cognitive scientists have made enormous strides in understanding the brain and how we learn, but little of that insight has filtered down to the way teachers teach. Uncommon Sense Teaching applies this research to the classroom for teachers, parents, and anyone interested in improving education. Topics include: keeping students motivated and engaged, especially with online learning; helping students remember information long-term, so it isn’t immediately forgotten after a test; how to teach inclusively in a diverse classroom where students have a wide range of abilities.
We will be discussing the book throughout the month on our Discord server (https://discord.gg/MJBVrtTf) and we will meet for one final live discussion at the end of the month.
