Brain Compatible Approaches for Motivating Reluctant Learners
How do we get our reluctant learners to participate more without creating confrontation?
How do we engage all our students and help them retain more?
This lively interactive workshop provides K-12 teachers with practical strategies based on current research on the brain that help boost student involvement, motivation, and retention.
Participants will explore how the brain learns, with focus on the MEANS for making a difference:
Memory – key ways to increase your students’ retention
Emotion – its critical role in student learning
Attention – how to get it and maintain it
New Meaning – how to “wire it” into long-term memory
Strategies – Dozens that are Brain-Compatible
Participants will leave with:
