The Education Revolution
How to Apply Brain Science to Improve Instruction and School Climate



© 2017 | 200 pages | Corwin

Maximizing student capacity and restoring motivation—the key to school success

Brain research has the power to revolutionize education, but it can be difficult for educators to implement innovative strategies without the proper knowledge or resources. The Education Revolution bridges the gap between neuroscience, psychology, and educational practice. It delivers what educators need: concrete applications of the most current and relevant research that they can use in their classrooms and schools. Readers will find

  • Teaching strategies based on the latest brain research, designed to advance academic performance
  • Scientifically sound, solution-focused practices to address the root of negative behaviors
  • Approaches to counteract the negative impact of technology on the brain
  • Concrete methods to improve school climate
  • Model lessons for teachers that demonstrate how to implement the given strategies

Written by Horacio Sanchez, a leading authority on child and adolescent behavior and resiliency, this book shows educators how they can use our growing understanding of brain science to restore students’ desire to learn; improve achievement, behavior and school climate; and revolutionize education. 

"Sanchez combines expertise in education, psychology, and neuroscience with extensive teaching experience and extraordinary insight into what makes us all behave the way we do.”
Dr. David L. Katz, President, American College of Lifestyle Medicine
Director, Yale University Prevention Research Center

"Educators who do not understand current brain research can do real harm to their students. It is the equivalent of malpractice for doctors. Join the education revolution and empower your students to thrive!"

Dara Feldman, Educational Consultant

"The Education Revolution focuses on the whole child through both academic and social aspects of learning. This is the first text I've read that addresses the small percent of our population whose behaviors will not be eradicated through punishment. I feel confident that I can trust this research and use these ideas in my teaching."

"Brilliant! Horacio’s Education Revolution is a must read for all educators. It is on target and it will become an essential component of our professional development plan, and it should be included in every teacher preparation program. Teachers, principals, coaches, superintendents, and everyone interested in the education of today’s youth must read this book. Don’t wait. Our students deserve the best."
