A Message From Your Seminar Leader

Dear Colleague:

We are going to have to use our brains more and more effectively in order to survive in a world of growing knowledge and information. As educators, we are responsible for the growth of young brains as well as keeping those dendrites growing for us.

You will learn how to use the latest research in practical ways to enhance student achievement in your classroom. Among the topics will be how the brain learns, the importance of making connections, the two "hooks" to learning, and numerous interesting, practical, brain-based learning strategies that you can take back to your own classroom and school environment.

I would like to personally invite you to attend the seminar. Come and find out how to apply the latest brain research for keeping our brains healthy and active, which can directly impact our lives as educators; and even more significantly, the lives of our students. The more we understand about how brains grow and function, the more equipped we will be to create a learning environment that is challenging, exciting and productive for ourselves and our students.

Throughout the day, we will focus on how you can enhance your students' learning by utilizing the latest brain research.

Sincerely,

Deborah G. Estes

P.S. You'll leave with practical strategies you can immediately implement in your own classroom.
