Teaching to the Brain: Brain Development Principles for the Early Childhood Classroom


Event Description

We’ve all heard of teaching to the test, and we all know that this strategy has no long-term success for children’s learning. Instead, I suggest “teaching to the brain”….using what we know about how the brain develops to influence what we do in our classrooms. During the first five years of life, the brain develops at a rapid speed. Although the brain can be trained to memorize pieces of information, true learning and understanding comes from experiences that are tailored to the way the brain develops during these important years. In this session, we will explore the developing brain in connection with planning learning experiences for young children that maximize the foundation for later learning.
