November Webinar: The Brain Targeted Teaching Model for 21st Century Schools

November Webinar – The Brain Targeted Teaching Model for 21st Century Schools

Featuring Dr. Mariale Hardiman

November 19th @ 12 pm EST, Priced at $35

Overview:
Emerging research in the neurological and cognitive sciences offers promising possibilities to inform and enhance the teaching and learning process. Translating this research to practice, however, is often challenging for educational practitioners. This presentation will offer teachers and administrators practical application of research from the learning sciences through the lens of the Brain-Targeted Teaching Model—an instructional framework based on the tenets of research-based effective instruction. We will examine ways in which the Brain-Targeted Teaching Model supports meaningful integration of the arts and review recent research findings by the Johns Hopkins research team.

Objectives:
 Describe themes in brain research that can inform educational practice consistent with the Brain-Targeted Teaching Model.
 Describe how emotional and physical learning environments affect learning.
 Identify themes in brain research that educators can apply as they design instruction; teach for mastery of content, skills, and processes; design activities to apply and extend knowledge through creative problem-solving; and evaluate learning.
 Identify specific classroom strategies to improve teaching and learning through the Brain-Targeted Teaching Model including integrating the arts into content instruction.
