This 12-session series introduces students to the structure, function and development of their own developing brains. Students learn to love and take care of their brains through a series of interactive, multi-media lessons.
The workshop includes the following topics:
These topics provide students with the information they need to make good decisions regarding their health and future. Most important, My Awesome Brain normalizes much of the adolescent experience by explaining the many confusing and mysterious feelings, thoughts, and behaviors resulting from a rapidly-developing brain. Each session is tied to standards-based learning outcomes and can be provided in a variety of formats (12-week, 9-week, 6-week or 3-day seminar).
The middle school and high school versions are distinct and developmentally targeted. My Awesome Brain empowers students with the knowledge and skills necessary to take care of their brains, manage the many challenges of the teen years and better understand the risks and strengths of the unique brain they have during this special time of life.
My Awesome Brain is fun and engaging, using hands-on models, brain scans, video, music and scores of manipulatives to teach students about the most incredible and valuable organ in their bodies!
