The researcher is investigating the reasons why teachers should employ the use of brain breaks and movement. It is postulated that movement in a classroom will help students learn and recall information by increasing the blood flow and the connections between neural transmitters. The movement that takes place in a classroom can be simple and quick but even this will increase student learning. Additionally, a teacher handbook including brain break strategies will be created to share with my colleagues.
