Book Club for #wholebrainteaching

The Whole Brain Teaching for Challenging Kids book club is off to a great start! So far, in just two days of being open, we have 135 members, almost 5,000 page views, and nearly 100 comments! WOW!

If you aren't a whole brain teacher yet, this is a great place to go to learn more about what whole brain teaching is all about. All summer, Coach B. will be posting assignments for each chapter. These will help members to really think about the techniques of whole brain teaching, and how they can be realistically applied to individual classrooms.

This is one of the things that I love most about this movement. It's not put forth by obscure professors or "experts" that have no foundation in real classrooms. This movement is a movement of teachers! The discussions happening on the book club are real and relevant and amazing. SO join in!

Here are the guidelines:
1. Become a member of this site. Scroll down on the right and click "Join this site". Only members are able to post.
2. Enter your email address in the box on the right (just below the Members section). This will allow you to receive messages from Coach B regarding new discussion topics and important info.
3. Click on the Chapter links on the right to see questions related to each chapter of the book and post a comment with a thoughtful reply. Try not to exceed 250 words.
4. Feel free to ask questions and answer others' questions using the "Questions Page" on the right. Don't hold back! But dress appropriately; the weather in Teacher Heaven is electrified with funtricity so it can sizzle.

Come join the fun!
