What Brain Research Tells Us About Learning and Behaviour
This workshop will:
Examine the main findings on brain development, age-related differences, and acculturation of youth.
Examine strategies to use when working with youth based on brain research.
Look through the lens of gender when considering the needs of both boys and girls.
Not all boys are the same and not all girls are the same, but research indicates some generalities are worth considering. Questions we will consider include:
Females can speak up to 10 times as many words in a day as males – how come?
70% of learning and behavioural disability designations are boys- what does this tell us?
Are girls emotionally stronger than boys? What is the best way to deal with a boy who is upset? A girl who is upset?
Includes a 30 min. break
