The purpose of this study was to determine whether the implementation of various brain-based learning techniques would have an impact on the overall engagement of a group of 20 third-grade students. This study used a quasi-experimental design to determine any significant impact on student engagement resulting from implementation of brain-based learning in the classroom. In order to assess this, several educational professionals observed students in two learning environments and took note of any changes in student engagement. One group of students was exposed to brain-based learning, while the other was not. Students also completed questionnaires to assess their own levels of engagement throughout the study. Collected data was analyzed using student engagement observation charts. It was determined that the group of students exposed to brain-based learning in the classroom demonstrated higher levels of student engagement than the group that was not exposed. Brain-based learning is a successful technique to foster student engagement in the classroom.
