7 Components of Brain-Based Teaching

4.) Modulation: This is the quality of learning that gets us excited or curious. In the English classroom, you can use video clips and technology to increase student engagement.

1) Volition: This is the process of getting the learner to buy in to the learning. In English, you want to have a good "hook" and help the student connect to the literature. 2)Input: Pacing is an important part of this strategy. Ways to strengthen this is through building background knowledge and vocabulary throughout the unit. 3)Coherence: This is the quality of learning that allows us to feel at ease, comfortable and complete with it. Ways to work on this in the English classroom is through peer and classroom discussions.

6.) Representation: Learners ought to be able to represent and communicate the learning to another in a form other than how they learned it. To demonstrate this I frequently use graphic organizers where the student will summarize and draw illustrations to represent what they learned. I have regularly used Glogster for them to do author profiles or essays. 7.) Consolidation: This process should be active & passive. I have the students actively involved in deciding what will be placed on our word wall. They create the word wall entries. The words are pulled from our units and the literature to assist with understanding and expand vocabulary.

5.) Accuracy: This is changing errors into accurate representations. This can be demonstrated in the English classroom through discussions and use of technology for the students to show what they have learned.
