K-12 “Worksheets Don’t Grow Dendrites: 20 Instructional Strategies that Engage the Brain”

Date:  October 5, 2016

Have you ever wondered why some students cannot understand or recall important content after a 24-hour period? If your students are not learning the way you are teaching them, then you must teach them the way they learn! Experience 20 instructional strategies (based on brain research and learning style theory) that maximize memory and minimize forgetting. Increase learning for all students when strategies like drawing, metaphor, movement, music, and storytelling are used to teach curriculum objectives and meet international standards. Explore research that shows why these strategies are preferable to others. Ensure that brains retain key concepts, not only for tests, but for life! This workshop has been called both professionally and personally life-changing and lots of fun!

Participants will:

  • Experience 20 brain-compatible strategies for delivering an effective lesson or  staff development course;
  • Recall facts regarding the physiology of the brain as those facts pertain to increased comprehension and retention;
  • State five factors which all teachers should use to increase long-term retention;
  • Design a brain-compatible classroom environment;
  • Develop teaching plans which adhere to brain research and incorporate at least three of the 20 strategies.
