    Understanding how the brain works is very interesting to me, and this course related that to the different ways students learn in a unique way.

  2. Claudia – UNITED ISD (verified owner)

    no comment

  3. Margaret – FLOUR BLUFF ISD (verified owner)

    I liked this, but having the handouts would have been nice.

  4. Becky – SOUTHWEST ISD (verified owner)

    This course taught me the best leaner mode for the brain which are episodic and procedural .

  5. Cash – MANSFIELD ISD (verified owner)

    Awesome way to learn new ideas on GT creativity

  6. Leah – MANSFIELD ISD (verified owner)

    It was interesting

  7. Brandais – MANSFIELD ISD (verified owner)

    I liked how the presenter explained that just because we teach the content does not necessarily mean that
    the students know how to put it into place with critical thinking. Through higher level questions and relating
    learned objectives to real world experiences, we allow our students to go through needed critical thinking skills to
    apply the knowledge they have mastered.

  8. Catherine – DELAWARE CITY (verified owner)

    Very helpful in combining lessons using the various types.

  9. MANUELA – GOOSE CREEK CISD (verified owner)

    Very interesting.

  10. Diane – The Galloway School (verified owner)

    I thought it was interesting that he was talking about how to make instruction more brain compatible, but he really taught in the semantic style.
