Training the Brain to Listen: A Practical Strategy for Student Learning and Classroom Management

Training the Brain to Listen: A Practical Strategy for Student Learning and Classroom Management | Thinking, Learning, and Laughing | Scoop.it

Editor's note: This post is co-authored by Marcus Conyers who, with Donna Wilson, is co-developer of the M.S. and Ed.S. Brain-Based Teaching degree programs at Nova Southeastern University. 

 

During the school year, students are expected to listen to and absorb vast amounts of content. But how much time has been devoted to equipping students with ways to disconnect from their own internal dialogue (self-talk) and to focus their attention fully on academic content that is being presented? Listening is hard work even for adults. When students are unable to listen effectively, classroom management issues arise.

Teaching the difference between hearing (acknowledging there is a noise but not necessarily engaging the brain to understand the sound) and listening (consciously trying to make sense of the sound) would be a good first step too.

How the Rich are Different from the Poor I: Choice

How the Rich are Different from the Poor I: Choice | Thinking, Learning, and Laughing | Scoop.it
Middle class individuals' lives are defined by choice.

"In this first part of a four part series I will be exploring precisely how the rich differ from the poor—in a psychological sense at least. In this first post, I examine how one's social class status--that is, the money, education, and occupation status of one's family—influences the concept of choice."
