Cognitive Skills and Biology, History and Literature
We talk a lot about the importance of underlying cognitive skills for academic performance, but how exactly do those skills show up when one is learning biology, or studying history, or analyzing literature? This webinar will take attendees beyond the elementary classroom and the priorities of reading and math to more complex, higher-order thinking required for successful performance in academic subjects at the middle-school and high-school level.
Our guest presenter for this webinar is Stacy Harris, founder of Creating Independent Learners. As a learning specialist for the past nine years, she has specialized in visual and auditory processing, visual language processing, and written expression. She has studied extensively in the areas of content learning, literacy, and writing, focusing on the application of her background in neurpsychology, in which she received a Master’s degree from the University of Chicago.
