Two educational innovators, Barbara K. Given, Ph.D., and Bobbi DePorter, CEO of Quantum Learning Network (QLN), have teamed up to make an impact in classrooms with Excellence in Teaching and Learning: The Quantum Learning System. The book demonstrates that the integration of the Brain’s Natural Learning Systems with the Quantum Learning System creates an impact that transforms the way teachers teach and students learn. This comprehensive approach empowers teachers to achieve the desired goal that students leave high school prepared for success in college and career with strong character and citizenship traits.
With today’s more rigorous standards, much is expected from teachers and often there is little direction or support for how to get results. Without new information and professional development tools to improve instruction and develop positive learning cultures, these expectations may be unrealistic. Excellence in Teaching and Learning: The Quantum Learning System provides the “how” along with supporting evidence that supplies teachers with the knowledge required for excellence in teaching.
The book focuses on two main sections—Components of Culture and Components of Cognition, each with three parts that cover one of the learning systems and the corresponding QL component. Culture consists of Social Learning/Foundation, Emotional Learning/Atmosphere, and Implicit Learning/Environment. Cognition encompasses Cognitive Learning/Design, Physical Learning/Deliver, and Reflective Learning/Deepen.
