Description

According to Joyce Juntune, Ph.D., teaching is really about rewiring students’ brains for better thinking. In this brief lesson from our Essentials series, Dr. Juntune will show you how to move students out of the mode of automaticity and fixation and how to help them build better networks as you rewire their brains.

You will learn:

  • What automaticity and fixation are
  • Why automaticity and fixation lay the groundwork for non-thinking students
  • How to break up automaticity and fixation by using the concepts of primacy and recency to create multiple points of learning
  • How to help students connect a single piece of information to multiple networks in their brains by utilizing what Dr. Juntune calls “superhighways, scenic roads, and detours”
