New brain science shows brain differences between poor and affluent kids

New brain science shows brain differences between poor and affluent kids | Nuts and Bolts of School Management | Scoop.it
Research adds to the debate about the growing academic gap between poor and rich students.


The Washington Post (4/16, Layton) reports that neuroscientists have showed in a new study that the cerebral cortexes of affluent children are larger than those of their poorer counterparts. Theories posited by Noble and another scientist studying the matter include that poorer families lack the nutrition and healthcare needed to develop the brain and that poorer children undergo more stressful lives, which may “inhibit healthy brain development.” University College London psychologist James Thompson is paraphrased positing that intelligence has “a genetic component” and that less able, poorer families pass on their genes. The research and its implications are timely, as policymakers such as Education Secretary Arne Duncan seek to direct funding to promoting better education, especially in early education.

Reflective Teachers Are More Effective: Improvement Doesn’t Happen by Accident | Nuts and Bolts of School Management | Scoop.it
Teachers that are more reflective are more effective in the classroom. The difference between learning a skill and being able to implement it effectively is in our capacity to engage in deep, continuous thought about that skill. In other words, recognizing why we do something is often more important than knowing how to do it. Reflective practitioners are intentional in their actions, accurately assess their influence, adjust their actions on the fly, and engage in ongoing reflection. On this epi
