Progress in brain research has necessitated a call to action for application of this research into the practice of education.  Your text addresses many different aspects of brain research that might inform educational practice, including information processing models, research directed toward different kinds of memory, and new research regarding brain development.  For this discussion:

  • Find a recent journal article (published within the last 5 years) from a peer-reviewed journal that discusses a new study or research that is related to one of the areas of brain research discussed in your text this week.  Be sure to post a link to the article you are discussing.
  • Briefly describe the study from your article, including the results of the study.
  • How might the results of the study you chose inform intentional teaching?  Discuss at least one (1) way in which an intentional teacher might use this information in the classroom.
  • Be sure to include properly cited scholarly sources.
