The article discusses brain research-based teaching strategies to keep students interested in learning more. According to the author, students may lose their passion for learning if engagement is lost from school curriculum. Based on neuroimaging brain research, students learn the most when they are given an active voice in the classroom. Attention and cognition of students go up when dopamine is released. The author states that students understand better when they discuss and inquire about information themselves.
