Limited Capacity filling up

If learning is truly a collaborative endeavor, then it only makes sense that parents, teachers and students should have a mutual understanding of how the brain learns and processes information. In this presentation, which has previously been done for parents, Carol will explore the basics of brain-based learning, the role of nutrition and sleep, stress and its effect on learning and the brain and strategies parents (and teachers) can use to help students consolidate their learning. We will also address the special qualities of the middle-school brain and how this impacts our students' behavior and learning. Participants will walk away with at least five "good-to-knows" about how student brains focus, process and remember, and some practical strategies for how to apply brain research to their teaching.
