TEACHING THE ADOLESCENT BRAIN

Here's a resource that will introduce your school to fascinating scientific discoveries about the adolescent brain and how these findings relate to effective classroom practice for secondary school teachers.

Use the DVD and the Facilitator's Guide in teacher workshops, school improvement teams, and study groups to explore the changes that occur in the brains of healthy teens and how these changes affect their thinking, learning, and behavior.

Explain why changes in the adolescent brain reveal the reasons why teens behave the way they do--their difficulties with planning, time management, and deadlines. Show examples of teaching strategies that match with teenagers' developing minds and help support their maturing thinking skills. And focus on how educators can influence teens to avoid negative behaviors--including health- and risk-related issues--that often derail learning. Plus, a short program for students and parents offers you a way to reach out to other audiences in your school who want to explore the challenges of the adolescent years.

Program 1: Almost Adults provides a clear and simple explanation of how brain structures and functions change in the adolescent years.

Program 2: The Engaged Teen takes audiences to actual secondary school classrooms to showcase teaching practices that are especially effective at helping teens learn and retain new content.

Program 3: The Reflective Teen highlights the importance of teaching teenagers thinking skills that help them monitor and direct their own behavior.

Program 4: Know Your Brain íK Know Yourself frames the issues from this series in a student's perspective, to help you spark classroom discussions and enlighten parent audiences on what's going on in teenagers' heads.
