Raising Brains Post Pandemic
Hosted by Brain Behavior Bridge, this one-day, virtual workshop is geared toward general and special education teachers in preschool through middle school
Post pandemic, teachers must meet an increasing number of social-emotional needs along with varying academic levels. In order to meet the New Jersey Student Learning Standards, teachers must have a good understanding of how to create classrooms that support the development of social-emotional skills as well as academic skills.
By understanding brain development in children, teachers can work with, instead of against, natural brain patterns, which makes what they already do so well more successful. Teachers need support in gaining the skills to create a growth mindset classroom that focuses on the creation of goals for individual students, methods for teaching students how to create their own goals and achieve them, and strategies that support student growth but do not overtax teachers. Brain Behavior Bridge wants students to gain self-understanding and insight and to assist teachers in focusing on helping their students meet the appropriate learning standards.
This training helps teachers pull all their prior continuing education together in an efficient and effective approach that supports brain growth and frees teachers to teach.
Explore the neuroscience of learning, matching existing tools with brain styles, a growth mindset, and mental health.
Brain basics: Learn how brains work—yours and your students! Understand neuropsychology basics and how to apply this knowledge to the classroom.
Innie or outie? Determine what innie brains and outie brains are and why that matters to educators when deciding which tools to use.
Not new tools, new ways Educators are inundated with new tools to use in the classroom to manage behavior, improve academic outcomes, and more. Instead of new tools, learn how to match the tools you already have to the brain type of each student for better results.
