Brain-Friendly Teaching

Kagan Structures to Teach the Ways Brains Best Learn!

June 6–7, 2022
Grades K-12

We have a choice: We can teach using traditional methods or we can teach the way the brain best learns. Teaching with traditional methods is like swimming against the current: Teaching is more exhausting, students learn less, and like class, content, and the teacher less. When we teach the ways the brains best learn, teaching is more effortless and students learn and enjoy class more. You will view actual brain scans demonstrating how to boost engagement and retention with simple structures as part of any lesson. You will learn the six principles of brain-friendly teaching in a way you will never forget! Come turn on your brain in this active brains-on, interactive workshop. Learn to boost motivation and achievement as you create your brain-friendly classroom! WS# 33477
