Dr. Sheldon Margulies has thrown away the textbook! Instead, he speaks directly to the student as he narrates each image. He is a board-certified neurologist, has taught over 2500 medical students, and authored three books. He understands how we learn, how we focus our attention, how we retrieve information, and how emotion and motivation affect learning. His courses represent what innovative teaching can do for your student. Dr. Margulies flips the teaching process by approaching science through the “right hemisphere” of the brain. He uses simple, colorful illustrations, supplemented with attached audio files to explain the illustrations.

Dr. Margulies uses questions and answers to engage students in an interactive relationship. Lessons begin with an everyday observation, then Dr. Margulies asks why that happens. The answer to his question generally elicits another question. The process is repeated one step at a time, in simple English, without terms of art. Terminology is used, but is not a prerequisite to understanding.

The courses are structured so students will always be succeeding. Within each lesson are “Catch our breath” slides that summarize and offer a short break. At the end of each lesson is a “What you know so far” summary that lists what the student should be taking away from the lesson. Next, there is a review that will allow students to use what they’ve learned. After they’ve thought about an answer to the review question, they can click on the narrated answer. Next, the student can take an online test. If a student is ever “stuck”, there’s a help button that offers key points to help them answer the test question. We have scripts for lessons and reviews and pdf copies of the tests (and answer keys) to be administered without access to the help button, (if the parent/teacher prefers).

Dr. Margulies sincerely wants students to dive into science without fear of being overwhelmed. He wants them to succeed and develop confidence in their own abilities and to use their learning as a tool to understand why they are learning each topic and how they can apply this knowledge in their everyday life.

The net result of Dr. Margulies’ approach is an efficient and effective way to learn science. It is a solid program for use in school, after school, home school, or simply to understand the world around you. Complete Fascinating Chemistry, Biology, and Physics and you will never look at the world around you in the same way.
