Participants will be given a short overview of Brain Gym. This is not a full Brain Gym course, but instead a two hour overview of the more comprehensive training.
Participants will be introduced to 26 simple and enjoyable movements that make up the Brain Gym menu. These activities make all types of learning easier and are especially effective with improving academics for children with learning differences and/or ADHD. Brain Gym movements bring about integrated whole brain learning.
Would you like to be able to help struggling students enjoy learning? Brain Gym movements utilize a balancing process which enhances all learning. Participants will become confident users of the Brain Gym balancing process to improve reading, writing, listening and motor skills for themselves and their students.

Have you ever noticed that the louder some teachers get when reprimanding students, the louder those students also become? Learn techniques for managing an active, brain-compatible classroom without ever raising your voice. Learn to alleviate 100% of your behavior problems. Eliminate at least 50% by the way you set up the physical environment in your classroom and deliver engaging lessons. After all, your best defense against classroom management problems is an engaging lesson. Get rid of another 40% by developing and implementing a proactive management plan which includes rituals, celebrations, and consequences. Then tackle the most challenging 10% by using techniques which appear to work with such chronic behavior disorders as attention-deficit, conduct, or oppositional disorder. You will also experience the bonus of learning to create a home environment which minimizes stress and maximizes calm!

Too many students fall short of their academic potential due to poor or undeveloped study practices. In this course, students will learn to improve their study techniques by honing skills and developing strategies in areas such as reading, note-taking, concept-mapping, test-taking, goal-setting, and critical thinking. Students will also be coached on self-motivation strategies to help foster intrinsic motivation. The implementation of these strategies can provide capable-but-underachieving students with the academic success that has been eluding them. For grades 9-12.
