The present scenario of education has put forward different theories and approaches to bring forth quality in instruction and to eliminate the limitation of normal way of learning. Some of the new approaches of learning are constructivism, multiple intelligence, active learning, inquiry-based learning, etc. One of the challenges India facing today is not only expansion and universalisation of education but also to improve the quality of education. Teachers in their every step of teaching structure the content and teach it in a well-planned and well-executed way. However, expected learning is not resulted. As such, teachers must play a vital role in overcoming this challenge. For this, teachers need to undergo the following steps.…show more content… To find out the impact of BBTA on the psychological variable – stress.
4. To find out whether there exist any significant difference among boys and girls in their stress levels.
5. To find out the significant difference in their achievement scores with respect to their psychological variables like intelligence, memory, and stress.

7. VARIABLES OF THE STUDY:
The present study consist of
• Independent variable – Brain-based teaching approach
• Dependent variable – Academic achievement
• Psychological variables – Intelligence, Memory, Stress
• Moderate variable –…show more content… Designing: The researcher being an English teacher has selected IX standard syllabus of Second Language English Text to meet the purpose of study. The content to be taught was allotted by the concerned subject teacher of the selected schools. Based on the allotted teaching content, researcher designed the lesson plan. The lesson plan was designed particularly based on the three interactive techniques that emerged from the twelve brain-based learning principles. The three techniques are Relaxed Alertness, Orchestrated Immersion, and Active Processing. In relaxed alertness, an effort is made to eliminate fear in students by providing a challenging environment for learning. Music is played to create a relaxation in the mind of students. Orchestrated immersion is the stage where the students are immersed fully in actual learning experiences. Students are made to understand the learning content with relevant pictures, audio, flow charts, etc. The learner evaluates themselves in the final stage, active processing. Daily assessment test and related questions are encouraged in this session. Effective and successful teaching mainly depends on the perfect lesson planning. As a result, researcher carefully designed the lesson plan by blending these three techniques of brain-based learning to the herbartian steps. Therefore, it helped the researcher from not deviating from meeting the educational
