Summary "Chaos in the Classroom is about all the mysterious and creative thinking that goes on in classrooms from elementary school to university graduate school, and how teachers can understand what is happening. In developing a new theory of learning, the authors viewed the overlap among cognitive learning theory, brain-based learning theory, and critical thinking theory through the lens of chaos theory to make sense of the teaching/learning process. The authors take the reader through explanations of the theories, the development of the new theory, and conclude with an informative chapter on how teachers can create chaos in their own classrooms."--BOOK JACKET
