Developing Minds, Inc.

About the Conference

Experience 20 instructional strategies (based on brain research) that maximize memory and minimize forgetting. Increase learning for all students, including those at-risk and in poverty, when strategies like drawing, metaphor, movement, music, and storytelling are used to teach curriculum objectives and meet international standards. Explore research that shows why these strategies are preferable to others. If your students are not learning the way you are teaching them, then you must teach them the way they learn! This workshop has been called both professionally and personally life-changing and lots of fun!
