Whole Brain Teaching Book Study

Have you heard of Whole Brain Teaching?  I first heard about it two years ago at the I Teach K conference. I didn't think of it much more after that until last year when a friend suggested I read the book.  I Googled the book, found the website, and read a little bit, then ordered it from Amazon.

When it arrived, I was excited to read it.  I read the first part, watched some Youtube videos and even made a Pinterest board for all the things I could find about WBT.  I tried to sit in on a webinar,  hosted by the books Author, but I had a terrible connection and gave up.  I wasn't really sure how it could work in kindergarten, but I gave it a try.  I  started with the "CLass"" "Yes"".  I couldn't believe how quickly my kids caught on, and it worked.

Then assessment time came  and that was that.  I never finished the book, i never tried to watch more webinars and I never implemented anymore steps.  So that brings me to now.  It is summer break, the book is still in my reading basket next to my big comfy chair and I will be starting a book study in my Teacher Facebook Group.  I also have another blogger friend who will be joining me to help me  lead the very casual discussions.  I've shared it on my Facebook fan page and in my Facebook Teacher group.  I was surprised to learn that many teachers like myself already had the book or were planning to read the book.

I'm inviting all of you to join the book study on Whole Brain Teaching for Challenging Kids. It won't be anything formal. It would require you to have the book, read the book and discuss it. We are planning to start on June 30th.   Also if you have Amazon prime, I think the book is available for free on your Kindle downloads.
 
You can join the Teacher Facebook Friends group here
Time 4 kindergarten Facebook Group, Teacher groups,
 If you want to see what I have pinned on my WBT board, you can see it here.
Follow Time 4 Kindergarten's board WBT (Whole Brain Teaching) on Pinterest.

So, grab the book and join the Whole Brain Teaching Book Study, we can all learn about it together.  This is going to be fun!!!

I've never heard of this method of teaching but it sounds fascinating! I'm not a teacher, just a mom, so I can't join the study but I'm definitely researching more about this teaching method!

I love WBT! I use it in my class but sadly the book has sat unopened on the shelf for like a year... just requested to join the FB group...I don't teach Kinder but want to do the book study :) Is the FB group where you'll be discussing?

Tiffani Mugurussa said...

Ms. Hoag- yes, we will be discussing it in the FB group,. Then I'll take some pieces from that and write a blog post or two about it. I'm also working on putting together a Twitter chat towards the end of July and then again after school starts in September.
