Student resources – Bath Spa University

Looking at brain-based claims in education

This is a teaching and learning resource designed for trainee teachers. To get you started, we recommend you follow one of the five links below. 

You'll first be presented with a common claim or question that you might encounter in a school setting. To begin with, think about how you might initially answer or react to this question.

In the rest of the presentation, you will be prompted by critical questions to explore the underlying research of the claim or query. You will also be asked to consider the implications for your teaching practice. Be ready to share what you've found with your fellow students.
