Recently, Sister Bridget wrote, The Brain and Educational Connections, published by University Press of America. The book is based on current studies from neuroscientists and research in the field of psychology and education. It also presents sound educational theories and practices as they relate to important research findings. It is written for teachers, administrators, and those interested in providing stimulating and nurturing environments for children to become enthusiastic life-long learners.
Scientific research helps identify and affirm, for those in education, good teaching strategies. Research shows conclusively that learning, and therefore teaching, is holistic. Therefore, education must address the emotional, psychological, and social needs of the child if it is to be considered successful.
This book provides compelling, thought provoking, and relevant materials that will renew readers’ dedication to teaching and lend credence and support to new and creative educational practices.
