By popular demand, here is a resource book which brings a wealth of information and practical activities to teachers wishing to enjoy the benefits of the Brain-friendly revolution.
Estimates suggest that most of us only use between 4% and 10% of our available brain power!
What could we achieve if we used a bit more?
This book explains:
- How understanding of the brain workings has increased enormously in the last few years
- How the findings of neurologists have huge implications
- How more effective linking of the complex systems in the brain demonstrably achieves improved transfer to long-term memory.
- The book contains practical examples for the classroom that will have a dramatic effect on teaching methods and learning expectations in the next millennium.
It includes help, examples, and activities for using Mind Mapping, N.L.P., Suggestopedia, music, colour, learning styles and much more in your classroom.
Extracts from the foreword
Sir Christopher Ball is patron of the Campaign for Learning, Co-Chair (with Professor Susan Greenfield) of the 'Learning and the Brain' Royal Institution seminars 2000.
As a learner, I believe I can learn anything - provided the conditions are right! As a teacher, I believe I can teach anybody anything - with the same proviso ... Learning is a natural instinct, and teaching an art that can be mastered. This book is all about the conditions for successful teaching and learning. Read it, if you want to know what they are.
Are you sitting comfortably? Then I'll begin ... Turn to page 2 (or any other page) and enjoy this remarkable book ... I wish I had been able to read Teaching for Success at the beginning rather than the end of my career. I expect he does too. But it's never too late to learn!

- This excellent book provides a practical workshop for any teacher who wants to consider new approaches to learning and teaching. The author is well known for promoting fresh approaches to teaching and his work is based on multiple forms of intelligence, brain-friendly teaching, suggestopedia language work, accelerated learning and neuro linguistic programming. Mark Fletcher has written an enjoyable and informative book which values the importance of teachers and their work.

- Peter Saladin - Teacher Trainer Switzerland

- Ken Beare - ESLguide About.com
- I'd like to congratulate you on your fantastic book that impresses by the dense amount of theory presented in a playful way, while at the same time giving teachers lots of exercises, tips, and further materials for thought to put it all into practice. Quite an achievement indeed!
- Chris Athey - British Library
- I found your book very interesting, complex ideas and research findings made really accessible and fun to work through like a work-book.
- Adrian Underhill - Past President International Association of Teachers of English as a Foreign Language.
- I think it's great and I have already recommended it.
- Robin Cain - Review in English Teaching professional magazine
- If you're interested in innovative teaching methods and the new learning, and how it applies in the classroom Teaching for Success is for you. It is a hands-on teachers' guide based on the refreshing idea that learning should and can be organised to reflect how humans learn.
- Professor Michael Barber - Head of Standards and Effectiveness Unit, Department of Education and Employment
- (The book) makes a useful contribution to the professional development resources available in the area of 'learning to learn'...
- Gerald Haigh - Times Educational Supplement
- This a fun book for teachers with activities that will illuminate their work... there's plenty of theory alongside the fun and games.
- Toby Greany - Campaign for Learning
- Teaching for Success provides a refreshingly lighthearted introduction to some of the underlying thinking and practical applications of learning to learn for teachers, including learning styles, multiple intelligences and NLR. Aimed at teacher's from all disciplines the book is as much a 'thinking piece' as a handbook, rightly so in a field that is constantly developing.
