I was looking at a teaching blog when I first saw the term Whole Brain Teaching. I was instantly hooked by the raving comments this teacher had to say about the method, and I knew it would be my solution to classroom management.

Whole Brain Teaching: A Whole Lot of Fun
  • Cassandra Autrey says:
    This is a perfect resource to keep on hand for substitutes, parents, and classroom visitors. It provides a concise description of the Whole Brain teaching method that will allow guests and those unfamiliar with the method to get a very quick overview. I recommend providing your substitute with this document, or one similar, so that your students can stay consistent with the method, even when you are away.

    Another great video! I watched this video several times when trying to understand all the moving parts of Whole Brain Learning and how to get started with this method in my own classroom. She introduces a lot of great tools and ways to make Whole Brain work for you, such as her scoreboard necklace and three-peat! I think this video will help you get started and get your own ideas flowing.

    This was my first time to actually see Whole Brain Learning in action, and boy was I impressed! I love how energetic the teacher is, and her students are so engaged in the lesson. If you have never seen an example of Whole Brain in the classroom, this is by far the best example I have seen!

    I think this book pairs perfectly with the Whole Brain Teaching for Challenging Kids book. I love that the games and activities in this book are simple, and they don't require the teacher to purchase supplies or spend hours preparing for them. While these games are simple, they are still fun; and I found that my substitute students really engaged with them.

    I was given this book by a fellow teacher, and she loved this book! She's a second grade teacher and was having a tough time with behavioral issues. After using the strategies in her book, her class was completely transformed in a week, and her love of teaching was renewed. If you are dealing with the teaching blues, I suggest getting this book to breathe new life into your career.

    After hearing this foreign term in a teaching blog, I instantly opened up a new tab and Googled it. This was the first page I went to, and I suggest making it your first page too. I think this is a good starting point to learning what Whole Brain Teaching is and how it all started. While it's a good starting point, I definitely suggest looking into other resources as well.
