This study addressed the impact of brain compatible instruction on accelerated students in a heterogeneous intermediate classroom. The researcher provided knowledge and strategies that stimulated the natural learning systems of students. The eight areas that framed this research were absences of threat, meaningful content, choices, enriched environment, adequate time, collaboration, immediate specific feedback, and mastery. The hypothesis was brain compatible teaching methods facilitate student achievement gains. The data indicated the null hypothesis could not be rejected at an alpha level of .05. Two areas of significance below the .05 alpha level was feedback and teaching strategies leading to an enriched learning environment.
