Teaching the Adolescent Brain
May 13th, 2015
presented by Andrew Ordover, Ed.D.
We all know that teenagers are different. They’re different from the little children they once were; they’re different from the adults they will someday become; some parents and teachers argue that they’re different from anything human they’ve ever encountered.
Adolescence is a strange and challenging time—for those going through it and for those trying to raise and teach those who are going through it. In our next webinar, Teaching the Adolescent Brain, Dr. Andrew Ordover will discuss how the brains of young people change and develop through adolescence, and how those changes can profoundly affect thinking and learning.
During the webinar, participants will explore:
- The structure of the brain, and how people form memories and learn
- The physical changes that adolescents’ brains undergo
- How those changes affect learning
- The opportunities and challenges that these changes pose for educators
- Instructional strategies designed to take advantage of this unique period of growth and change
