Brain Hacks to Fill the Gaps!
Interested in learning how the brain learns to identify and meet the learning gaps of your students?  This session will demonstrate teacher tested techniques that utilize brain research to effectively enable students to work more efficiently and be able to retain more detailed information.  By establishing a student-centered learning environment that allows students to navigate a unit of study more independently, the teacher can spend more time working with small groups and individual conferencing to increase rigor of assignments without placing more stress on the students.  Individual conferencing enables the teacher to develop connections with students beyond the content and increase student engagement. Participants will leave session with several quick to implement teaching techniques that align with district curriculum that can easily become part of their next week’s lessons.
