Use these materials to help your students transform personal feelings into sharp learning tools. Research shows how teen brains differ and why youth love to take risks that can help them succeed.


Brimming over with personal feelings? Yet how many teens and young adults use far too few of these rich learning resources in your class?

Build a brain based culture with these materials. Use parts of the brain never before used to accomplish things never before accomplished. 6 cool forms here will drive transformation from feelings into learning tools! Students love the challenge to be actively involved!

Learn how students share feelings better in a safe setting. Compare that to your reluctance to “come out with hidden parts of you,” if you feel misunderstood or criticized?

The brain packs feelings into places where your intrapersonal IQ dominates.

Find out how feelings reside in your amygdala where emotional responses to situations lie in wait for similar situations to elicit stored responses.

Each time students share or act on feelings they alter neuron pathways that shape your amygdala’s flight or flight reactions. Through brain discoveries we now know that what we do shapes what we feel.

These tasks help students’ brains take advantage of triggers that build safe settings fit for shared feelings. For instance …

They will …

~ Lead with mutual benefits
~ Exchange past assumptions for new questions
~ Discover benefits where feelings thrive in safe settings
~ Risk flexibility – beyond conformity
~ Enjoy many student-ready forms to speak up and feel heard in any class!

Students enjoy learning how feelings can drag them into cortisol (a dangerous hormone) reactions that hamper their ability to share and explore genuine feelings.

Hopefully these ready-to-roll brain-based materials will benefit your learners and leaders as they do mine at middle, secondary, university levels and beyond.

Do follow my TpT site and keep up with brain-friendly materials to enhance your class.
