The Brain Campaign: Confronting the Obstacles of Students Who Live in Poverty with Neuroscience to Increase Achievement
The first portion of his session will highlight significant applications of neuroscience research to learning, with an emphasis on students who live in poverty. As I share the content of neuroscience research, I will be implementing the instructional practices that activate brain dendrites so that the participants will be actively engaged with that content. The second portion will provide guidance and examples of ways to integrate these understandings into daily lesson design. The questions that I will answer throughout the session are "What does this mean to me as an educator?" and "How can I use this with my students to increase their achievement?"
