    Brain friendly teaching

    We can teach the traditional methods or we can teach the way the brain best learns. When we teach with traditional methods, it is like swimming against the current: teaching is more exhausting, students learn less and students like class and content less. You will learn how to align your teaching with how brains best learn. Students learn more, enjoy class more and teaching is more effortless and enjoyable.

    Develop Deep Thinking While Reading in Every Subject

    Today’s standards demand students think more deeply about more complex texts and support their thinking with evidence from the text. Consequently, students are expected to deal with and understand the authors’ ideas, not just the information stated directly in the text. This workshop provides you with simple, concrete activities and engaging structures that guide students to actively interact with texts – making the complex inferential process a habit of mind for all students.
