About the Author:

Martha Kaufeldt has been a classroom teacher for more than 20 years. Now an independent consultant, she works with school districts across the United States and Canada on developing brain-compatible teaching and learning strategies. She gives motivational presentations and dynamic workshops that address the fundamentals of brain-compatible learning theory and integrated curriculum for all grade levels.

Review:

"Presents activities that are well chosen and described at a level of detail that will allow teachers to immediately try out the strategies in their own classrooms. Administrators in their role as instructional leader would also be well advised to read these ideas and strategies. If more classrooms reflected these ideas and used these strategies, education would not only be more effective and powerful, it would be a far more joyful experience for our students."-- (05/15/2009)

"Teachers who intend to make a marked difference in their students' learning and lives will profit from reading this book. They will not only find the material useful, they will be gratified and strengthened in their commitment."-- (05/15/2009)

"Martha Kaufeldt's classroom was the most memorable of my life. Each day was an adventure. From field trips to class projects, we learned history, science, writing, and speaking in a way that used all of our five senses. I can honestly say that I wouldn't be doing what I am doing today--teaching and serving in elected office--without Mrs. Kaufeldt's unique and lively approach to education."-- (06/01/2009)

"A robust collection of strategies, tools, and suggestions from an experienced classroom teacher's perspective that is linked to current understanding of research on brain-based learning. It is extremely practical for the practicing and preservice elementary teacher."-- (05/15/2009)
