Next week, students will be exploring strategies to learn and organize information
If you give a man a fish, you feed him for a day. If you teach a man to fish, you feed him for a lifetime. Likewise, teaching students how the brain learns, helps them become lifelong learners. Research in the recent years has determined that the brain is much more flexible and capable of learning new things than once believed. Understanding how the brain processes information, helps students feel more in control of their ability to learn. Having strategies to use to take in and organize the information also helps students become better learners.
