Full Description

`As educators struggle with the demands of No Child Left Behind, David Sousa offers practical ideas for linking the research being done by neuroscientists to the real world of learning in the classroom' - The School Administrator`The Leadership Brain is an incredible resource. David Sousa has taken brain research and made it meaningful to principals by showing them how a basic understanding of this field can make a difference at school' - Principal MagazinDavid A Sousa is an international educational consultant. He has conducted workshops in hundreds of school districts on brain research, brain based learning, instructional skills, supervision, and science education at the primary, secondary, and university levels. He has made presentations at national conventions of educational organizations and has served as a consultant to regional and local school districts across the United States, Canada, and Europe.This book is written to provide educational leaders insights into how research in cognitive neuroscience and other related areas can inform their practice. This book will explore the attributes of a successful leader, the basic facts that educational leaders should know about parts of the brain and their functions, how a leader encourage and develop creativity in a school, and many more such facets pertaining brain-compatible leadership. The book further explains the meaning of leadership, and the reasoning that if leadership is the key to true educational reform, then thoughtful leadership is the key to thoughtful reform. Science can provide leaders with a deeper understanding of their own thinking processes so that their decisions are mindful and ethical, and that is what this book will aim to illustrate.
