Abstract

This capstone addresses the question, How can substitute teachers implement the Brain Gym program? The researcher reviewed the literature available on current brain research findings, and was particularly influenced by such authors as Jensen, Dennison, and Hannaford. The literature review covers topics including the structure of the brain, memory, how movement influences learning, and what Brain Gym is and how it works. The research method was a curriculum design and utilized the theory of backward design by Wiggins and McTighe. The result was the creation of a handbook of Brain Gym lessons designed to be used by substitute teachers. Photographs of a student performing the Brain Gym movements are included to aid the reader.
