Getting and Keeping Students' Brains Energized and Eager
Stormon-Flynn, Mary
Online Submission
A brain has the capacity to absorb a great deal of information and can make decisions about what role or roles, major or minor, that data will play in its life. While it is most likely true that we learn one new thing every day, our brain, the controller of our thoughts, can decide what number of new things we can learn and remember each day. As I explored the topic of brain-based research into education, I became increasingly excited about how I would apply the knowledge to a specific educational context. As a teacher of high school English Language Learners in an urban school, I wanted to illustrate the importance of research into brain-based learning as it applies to students in this age bracket. As I prepared my curriculum, I wanted to ensure that I used brain-based principles of learning as a foundation so that I would enhance my students' academic journey by creating a more comfortable, yet stimulating environment.
