This course is designed to further your understanding of current research about the mechanics of how humans learn and process information, and demonstrate how these studies can make a difference in the way you teach your students. We’ll use the mysterious organ we know as the brain to explore, imagine, and think critically. Guest speakers, activities to build critical thinking and inquiry, and ways to make the practice of thinking like a scientist more overt for students will lead to making cognitive learning more meaningful in our daily teaching practice.
This four-week course includes three face-to-face meetings, as well as online work to incorporate what we’ve learned into the classroom. This hybrid course is designed for teachers of grades 5–8.
