Book Blurb: Today’s teachers face a daunting challenge: how to ensure a positive school experience for their students, many of whom carry the burden of adverse childhood experiences, such as abuse, poverty, divorce, abandonment, and numerous other serious social issues. Spurred by her personal experience and extensive exploration of brain-based learning, author Marilee Sprenger explains how brain science—what we know about how the brain works—can be applied to social-emotional learning.
This is a self-paced study. You are required to read Social Emotional Learning and the Brain reflection questions. A reflection paper will be submitted at the end of the study.
