Ms. Rogers from Springfield OR is requesting professional development through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
I need curriculum and resources to teach my students about the brain!
“Language is the road map of a culture. It tells you where its people come from and where they are going.” –Rita Mae Brown
My students experience life in two cultures and two languages.
Some love learning English while others find it difficult. Some live in supportive homes while others live in unsafe environments. Some receive snack packs because they do not get enough to eat while others eat out on the weekend.
However, the most important part...I have a community of learners that build relationships, show resilience, and model reflection. They persevere daily to become the best humans they can be!
I have a passion for education and neuroscience. More and more the world of education is finding links to the world of the brain. In order to better understand the connection, I would like curriculum and resources to expand my knowledge and my students.
There are many resources about the brain that will help enhance my knowledge, and in turn, my students' knowledge.
One such curriculum is called Mindup. Mindup is a grade band curriculum (K-2, 3-5) that has fifteen lessons centered around neuroscience, positive psychology, mindful awareness, and social-emotional learning. It teaches students specific strategies to use in order to create a positive learning environment for all.
The two books, Multiple Pathways and Educational Neuroscience, provide educator-friendly information about the brain and its functions. In order to help the student evaluate their own metacognition, I need to understand the brain and its effect on learning.
The final two books are kid-friendly ways to teach the brain to students. It allows them to explore the brain and how it works. It will lay the framework for their metacognitive adventure in class.
