Week 8 Reflection

Sarah K mentioned that by knowing how the brain works at different stages in a child’s life, we can learn the best ways to help them learn in the classrooms. That was something that really struck me. Not only should we understand how the brain works at different stages in a life, but we should understand the student’s background. Knowing how the child is being raised at home and what their home life is like is critical in understanding student behavior. Mrs. Barry said, “learning can be improved if teachers and educators base their teaching strategies on science rather than experiences with the learning process.”
