Except, here's what I'm seeing. I have students right now who have struggled through high school and according to New York State, we haven't gotten them there yet but I'm seeing tremendous growth and improvement. They're actually starting to talk about the topic because they're learning finally comprehending what's being discussed. These are kids who wouldn't ask questions because they just didn't understand the content. One of the things I've changed after learning about how the brain functions and learns, and adopting this (brain-targeted teaching) method, is to slow down and go deeper, unpacking things more. We start with a plan of this is what you're going to learn and this is how we're going to do that, rather than take these notes and memorise them.
I think the pseudo-science got a hold of the whole "brain" thing just to make the quick buck off of it.
