To ESCAPE this Room, students will be using MUSIC, MOVEMENT, ART, STORIES, MNEMONICS, FEELINGS, and many other strategies!!!
This is not a regular "escape the room!" Students will use what the brain likes and needs to internalize and retain the lesson in the BEST way!
This escape the room is flexible in many ways, you can use any math concept or skill!!! You can choose which challenges your students need to do to escape the room!
If you want a lesson to STICK, you need to do what the brain likes!
Find strategies using music, movement, mnemonics, imagination, emotional links, and more!
There is a movement across the world to integrate neuroscience into formal education. Researchers advocate for the “integration of neuroscience and education to ensure a teacher knows how to work most effectively with a student and reduce wasted energy on intervention without effectiveness” (Hohnen, 2016). Thompson (2015) reflects that Neuroscience should not be the study of just scientists anymore. Teachers should be interested in how the brain works: after all this is the organ that processes what happens in the classroom, learning!

As a Ph.D. students, I value research and avoid neuromyths.
