19 BRAIN COMPATIBLE TEACHING Page 8 The overwhelming need for learners is for meaningfulness we do not come to understand a subject or master a skill by sticking bits of information to each other. Understanding a subject results from perceiving relationships. The brain is designed as a pattern detector. Our function as educators is to provide our students with the sorts of experiences that enable them to perceive patterns that connect.

Include any notes that you remember about what they are and why they work as tools for thinking. 4. Also include information about how Thinking Maps are different from graphic organizers.
48 Better learning will come not so much from finding better ways for the teacher to INSTRUCT but from giving the learner better ways to CONSTRUCT MEANING. The maps should become STUDENT TOOLS FOR INDEPENDENT THINKING AND COLLABORATION.
