Product Description
Students complete 7 incremental tasks to form brain based teams - in a step-by-step approach that expands across multiple intelligences.


With three or four diverse members teams prepare an ideal setting to problem solve. Using MI guides, they integrate differences with a focus on quality outcomes for all.

Individually, learners identify their unique capabilities as tools to accomplish team goals.

Collectively, teams begin to recognize awesome strengths in peers. Students love to blend diverse strengths into brain based approaches.

The results? Innovative team solutions!
