Kimberly Noble's TED Talk, How Does Income Affect Childhood Brain Development, examines the impact of poverty on children before they even reach school age. Noble shares her insights and also discusses an experiment they began in May of 2018 to try and help children in poverty. This talk would be beneficial in a Sociology,
AP Psychology, Biology, or Childhood Development course. I plan on using this during my Human Development Unit of Psychology but it could also be used during the Biological Bases of Behavior Unit.
From TED.com- "Neuroscientist and pediatrician Kimberly Noble is leading the Baby's First Years study: the first-ever randomized study of how family income changes children's cognitive, emotional and brain development. She and a team of economists and policy experts are working together to find out: Can we help kids in poverty simply by giving families more money? 'The brain is not destiny,' Noble says. 'And if a child's brain can be changed, then anything is possible.'"
My video guide contains 15 questions and an answer key has been provided for your convenience. This TED Talk is almost 12 minutes in length but I would allow for a minimum of 20-25 minutes since there is a question before and after the talk. You would also want to consider time to discuss the talk.
