Is your school looking for professional development training on brain-based learning? Then this is for you! This professional development session includes a PPT presentation that guides your staff through about 20 key ideas with small group discussions built in. It covers ideas like
The role of the amygdala
Creating a safe environment for learning
The impact of sarcasm on the brain
Teaching in smaller chunks
The importance of review
Working with a variety of learning styles
Working with a variety of learning speeds
Cooperation over competition
Pro-active discipline over punishment
This file includes a Powerpoint presentation as well as a guide sheet for staff members to fill in notes and write down questions, concerns, and next steps. It is editable so you can tweak it to meet the specifics of your school or program (public vs private, school vs. summer program or camp, etc.)
It also includes some supplementary handouts - a learning styles inventory, a learning-styles based homework menu, and Cornell notes templates.
No matter what kind of program you work for, I hope that this can be a template to address the common strategies needed to create a safe and positive learning environment.
