87: Brain Matters

17 Jan

Today, I went to hear Eric Jensen. He is a leading brain guru. I learned so much. I am pumped up and ready to spread what I learned. Jensen makes a case that teachers can create classroom environments that can constantly rewire their brains to keep them hopeful, happy and positive. He gave so many strategies to help teachers with this. He had alarming statistics on brain development and drop outs rates for children raised in poverty. He also had amazing brain scans of kids that are struggling and brain scans after good teachers spend time with the child. Children’s brains can grow and change so quickly.

It’s truly amazing.
