Teachers use Whole Brain Teaching to help scholars experience their education. It is a research-based system that utilizes all areas of the brain. Whole Brain Teaching:
keeps scholars engaged throughout their lessons
highly interactive and helps scholars retain more information than the traditional lecture/ discussion model
encourages scholars to teach what they have just learned to their class partners, using hand-gestures to help remember specific concepts and vocabulary
enables our teachers to walk around the room and discover who understands the lesson and who needs more instruction
Core class curriculum is a carefully chosen combination of tools that, when utilized together, helps unlock success in each scholar.
