Abstract:

"Brain Gain transports viewers to an inner city high school in Saskatchewan where disciplinary and learning problems are rampant among students. More than half of the school's eighth and ninth grade students have a diagnosis of ADHD and many cannot read above a fourth grade level. When teacher Allison Cameron discovers the research of Harvard psychiatry professor John J. Ratey, she learns of his proposed link between sustained aerobic activity and the brain's ability to grow new cells. Cameron also learns of a Chicago area high school which, after instituting an exercise program eighteen years earlier, now has one of the best academic records in the United States. With the support of the school's principal and donations from the community, Cameron sets up an in-classroom fitness area with a variety of aerobic equipment. Brain Gain tells the story of Cameron and her students, their enthusiasm for exercising before each class, and the dramatic increase in academic achievement that resulted"--Distributors website.
