Three Brain Compatible Strategies Transform Behavior
Recent writings in the field of education contain plenty of ideas and recommendations on brain-compatible techniques and instructional strategies, but how do they really work and how are they implemented in practice? This webinar explores the experiences of Sarah Rahrig and Deanna Niebarger – Fifth Grade Teachers at Crooked Creek Elementary School in Indianapolis, IN. Sarah and Deanna worked with their professor and mentor from Marian University in Indianapolis, Dr. Lori Desautels. Strategies implemented by the team include Focused Attention Practices (mindfulness), Novelty and Prediction at the beginning of Lessons, and Story-Telling. Other tactics used by the team included Reciprocal Teaching, Whole-Body Movement-Based Learning, and Visual Imaging. This webinar will explore how these techniques were used, how the team adjusted their approach as they saw how students responded, and the impact their practices had on student behavior and learning.
