Today, we started a small unit on understanding the brain. Yes, I realize this isn't a Biology class, BUT, it is important that we understand HOW the brain works. This impacts how we are able to understand how we learn; it allows us to be more metacognitive.
Today, we studied Brain Rules 1-3 (Exercise, Survival, The Wired Brain). Their are 12 total brain rules. We'll finish the rest next week.
Now, you did have homework this week. Answer the simple Learning Styles Quiz and we'll score it for your bellringer on Monday.
