Want to learn all about 'the magical teenage brain'?
On Thursday, October 18th, School District 20 will be presenting a talk by brain-based learning facilitator Gary Anaka about that most mysterious of organs--the teenage brain.
"Today’s schools are full of teenagers struggling with learning difficulties, learned helplessness, boredom and stress. Find out the secrets of the teenage brain and how it learns best, meeting the needs of growing, changing adolescents.
"The more knowledge parents and educators have about the adolescent brain, the more they can support them to make wise decisions, take appropriate actions and get on the path for life-long learning.
The workshop will teach parents how to encourage their teens to
- Nourish their brain and reduce stress
- Learn in a brain compatible way
- Get teenagers moving and why it is critical to do so
- Literally grow new brain cells and new connections every day
- Engage the teenage brain
- Use correct brain states for learning
The talk will take place in the JL Crowe Theatre on Thursday, October 18th, 2012 at 7pm. The event is free, but donation boxes will be placed at the entrance of the theatre for donations of non-perishable food items to be donated to local food banks.
