Find out what academic behaviors activate the reward pathway in the brain and what reduce it. Discover the simple task that raised achievement more than additional study time. Acquire strategies for motivating and engaging diverse learners.

BREAKOUT: More Essential Findings From Brain Research

by Janet Zadina on 09/08/17

(Depending upon time allotment for the keynote, some findings may be moved to the breakout) 
Additional potential findings included in the breakout as time allows are:
*the underlying reason some students have math or reading difficulty
*the 10 minute rule for presenting material
*how anxiety, stress, and trauma affect learning
*why students know it but can’t say it
*why ESL or FL students can’t pronounce some sounds
*how to tap into the brain pathway for motivation and engagement
*how to use the brain’s attention mechanism to enhance recall
(Keep in mind that some of these items could actually be an hour presentation. If you see one that particularly interests you, you may want to select that topic as the breakout,)


For an ALL DAY WORKSHOP, prioritize these items and as many will be included as time allows with your group.
