Best-selling author Marilee Sprenger offers new and veteran teachers this revised and updated edition of her guide to translating the latest research on learning, memory, and the brain into effective classroom practice. Using Dorothy, Toto, and all the familiar and funny characters from the "wizdom" of Oz, the author provides in-depth but accessible coverage of learning theory, multiple intelligences, resilience theory, emotional intelligence, and classroom management strategies to help teachers master the complexities of teaching all the young brains in their classrooms. The revised edition features many new sidebars, illustrations, and graphic organizers to help readers understand complex concepts and translate theory into actual classroom practice.

"I'm impressed with the latest edition. For students thinking of becoming teachers in my educational psychology classes, there is a much more definitive teaching identified for 'brain-based learning,' and an increase in the application of the neuro-scientific approach for the learners to reflect and apply at increased grade levels." -- Arthur Huinker, Professor
"Marilee Sprenger makes the neuroscience content more accessible to 'newbies.' Students have often told me that the first edition of her book is easy to read." -- Valerie A. Ubbes, Associate Professor
"The book has plenty of practical, easy-to-employ, and effective ideas supported by research, and the sections are simple, yet powerful. The Wizdom sections really focus on some major ideas." -- Kathy Tritz-Rhodes, Principal
"An outstanding resource no teachers college or reference library should be without." -- Library Bookwatch, February 2007
