This title, Brain Friendly School Libraries, gives concrete practical examples of how to align school library programs and instructional practice with the six key concepts of brain-compatible learning: increasing input to the brain; increasing experiential data; multiple source feedback; reducing threat; involving students in learning decision making; and interdisciplinary unit planning. It includes chapters that summarize the current brain research and current thinking about its implication for instructional practice in the school library media center as well as discusses the work of Ellen Langer (mindful learning), Geoffrey and Renette Caine, Bob Sylwester and other major proponents of teaching with the "brain in mind."

Editorial Reviews

"Sykes, former library specialist turned principal offers an approach to library management and instruction that is based on neuroscience. Highlighted is the concept of the "teacher-librarian" who can use knowledge of brain research to create a more meaningful learning experience for students and staff. With information for librarians of elementary, middle, and high school, the book gives suggestions for activities that address a variety of learning styles. A list of resources and index are included."-Reference & Research Book News
