Priming the Brains for Learning and Well-Being!
Please join us for a day of learning about our brains and our students' brains! We will delve into brain development as it relates to classroom instruction, behaviors and engagement. We will discuss and share strategies for how to prime our brains for learning and well-being! Adversity and trauma affect brain architecture and the behaviors we often observe can look defiant, oppositional and aloof! We know that all behavior is communication and educators will leave with a plethora of brain aligned strategies that calm the stress response, engage learners and teach in ways moves connections and learning to long term memory.
