St. Andrew's Episcopal School and the Center for Transformative Teaching and Learning were the subject of a centerpiece on the Education page in Monday's edition of The Washington Post as a story by Valerie Strauss, titled "Brains Behind the Classes," highlighted the school and the way in which it utilizes the latest in brain research to improve teaching and learning.

The story quotes Dean of Studies and CTTL Director Glenn Whitman, along with Dr. Mariale Hardiman of Johns Hopkins, while giving real examples of how St. Andrew's faculty implement the latest research into their practice in deliberate ways.

Examples of the CTTL's work can be found in "Think Differently and Deeply." This resource provides examples of how St. Andrew's Pre-school through twelfth grade teachers apply research in how the mind learns--educational neuroscience--to the design of their classes and work with each student.
