An absolutely essential download for any teacher or leader hoping to help create self-regulating learners who can make informed choices about how they live in order to boost learning-power.
How can we expect our students to reap the benefits of a ‘growth mindset’ unless we teach them how ensure their brain is developing and growing to its full potential? How can we expect our students to reach their full learning-capacity unless they know how best to take care of their brain and its development?
We made a massive array of resources to foster self-regulated learning and metacognition but we kept coming back to a stark reality: many students live lifestyles that hinder brain-development and, unless we can help them to make choices that nurture brain-development instead, then their ability to succeed will be limited.
This collection of six learning sessions (each lasting 40-60 minutes) includes an exciting array of presentations, activities and worksheets on the following topics:
- What Your Brain Needs to Develop
- Water & Metacognition
- Sleep & Metacognition
- Nutrition for Brain Development & Boosting
- Exercise, Fitness & Metacognition
- Emotions, Mental Health & Metacognition
Each session focuses on how different lifestyle choices and factors impact their learning power both in the short-term and the long-term. Students are encouraged to connect learning to their own lives: monitoring, evaluating and regulating their own lifestyle choices with a view to enhancing brain-health and learning-power.
Download this unique resource-pack to enhance your school’s PSHE provision and create a solid foundation for the enhancement of learning power. All learning is underpinned by the health of the brain and nervous system: it is therefore essential that we teach young people how best to take care of it and give them an opportunity to monitor, evaluate and regulate the lifestyle and health choices that impact their learning-power.
Perhaps the most powerful self-regulated learning strategy of all is the maintenance of good physical, mental and neurological health. Download this resource today and help your students take better care of their brains!
