From the author of Neuromyths, a revolutionary look at teaching and learning via the logical pathways of the brain.

A review of the research on brain networks reveals, surprisingly, that there are just five basic pillars through which all learning takes place: Symbols, Patterns, Order, Categories, and Relationships. Dr. Tokuhama-Espinosa proposes that redesigning school curriculum around these five pillars―whether to augment or replace traditional subject categories―could enable students to develop the transdisciplinary problem-solving skills that are often touted as the ultimate goal of education. Heralding a potential paradigm shift in education, Five Pillars of the Mind explores how aligning instruction with the brain's natural design might just be the key to improving students' learning outcomes.

About the Author:

Tracey Tokuhama-Espinosa, PhD, is a Professor at Harvard University's Extension School and is currently an educational researcher affiliated with the Latin American Social Science Research Faculty (FLACSO) in Quito, Ecuador. She is also the founder of Connections: The Learning Sciences Platform, and an Associate Editor of the Nature Partner Journal, Science of Learning. Tracey has taught Kindergarten through University and works with schools, universities, governments and NGOs in more than 40 countries around the world.

Review:

“In this brief but mighty volume, Tokuhama-Espinosa proposes a new way of processing, proving, and understanding the world around us. . . . This is the most thought-provoking and innovative book about education I have read in a very long time.”
- Carol Ann Tomlinson, Curry School of Education, University of Virginia

“Tokuhama-Espinosa has written a cutting-edge book that has the potential to change the way educators think about designing and teaching the curriculum. Teaching relationships using the five broad pillars makes infinitely more sense in this day when most content can be found by 'Googling.'”
- Pat Wolfe, author of Brain Matters: Translating Research in Classroom Practice

“With depth and brilliance, Tokuhama-Espinosa has created a masterwork with Five Pillars of the Mind. She proposes a fresh taxonomy for our time replacing antiquated curriculum models with neurologically anchored 'pillars.' Look for Symbols, Patterns, Order, Categories, and Relationships to be the new fundamental launching points for the design of contemporary learning perspectives.”
- Heidi Hayes Jacobs, ED.D., President, Curriculum Designers, Inc.
