Whole Brain Teaching and English as a Second Language (ESL) Students
Whole Brain Teaching is designed to engage every member of a class, gaining and keeping their attention throughout a whole lesson. The techniques used in Whole Brain Teaching help students stay engaged and make learning fun for everyone. They prevent some students from disrupting the learning of others. All these things are important in any type of classroom, not just in standard K-12 classes in standard school subjects. They are just as important in an ESL classroom. More and more ESL teachers are learning about and using Whole Brain Teaching in their classrooms, whether they are teaching groups of immigrant children, or working overseas.
