A Framework for Literacy in a Brain-Compatible Environment.
Carroll County Board of Education, Carrollton, GA.
Presenting a framework for brain-compatible learning and literacy education implemented in grades K-5 in Carroll County (Georgia) schools, this group presentation describes brain-based education as being aware and familiar with the most recent research that is out there about how brains learn best and what facilitates brains' learning and incorporating that research into educational procedures. Four initiatives are outlined: (1) using brain-based education; (2) putting language arts far ahead of everything else; (3) focusing on procedures; and (4) focusing on personal and leadership development. The presentation engaged participants in learning stations that modeled this approach, addressing the learning environment, successful teaching practices based on a language arts framework, and classroom management techniques that are beginning to reflect "phenomenal gains" in student performance.
