Explore the mysteries of the human brain! Find out how discoveries in neuroscience provide insights into how students learn -- and how to engage them in the classroom.
- When we are faced with challenges, our brains are activated to learn new things—so long as a foundation of safety, belonging, and trust is there as well.
- When the situation feels out of control, a short stroll can soothe jangled nerves and gently bring the thinking brain back online.
- The science is clear: Drawing beats out reading and writing to help students remember concepts.
- Research shows that breaks can provide more than rest. Use them to boost creativity, cognitive function, and social skills.
- What happens to our brains ‘on art’? New studies—often backed by brain imaging technology—are beginning to dial in on the answers.
- An action as easy as taking a sip of water can help teachers and students calm themselves in stressful situations.
- Children with dyslexia who struggle to read often conclude they're not smart enough to master the materials—but the research says that's wrong.
- Explicitly modeling the process of prioritizing tasks builds students’ ability to organize and manage their time.
