  1. 1. The CORE Learning System:<br />CollectOrganizeRehearseEvaluate<br />
  2. 2. Brain Science & Learning<br />How to Grow Your Brain<br />
  3. 3. Are our brains limited?<br />
  4. 4. Or can our brains grow...<br />
  5. 5. Interesting Brain Facts<br />How much does it weigh?<br />3 pounds.<br />How big is it?<br />Cerebral cortex (wrinkled brain wrap) is as big as the front page news.<br />What does it feel like?<br />Like soft butter.<br />
  6. 6. Brain Parts<br />PARIETAL LOBE<br />CEREBRAL CORTEX<br />FRONTAL LOBE<br />OCCIPITAL LOBE<br />AMYGDALA<br />TEMPORAL LOBE<br />
  7. 7. Brain Functions<br />PARIETAL LOBE<br />Physical sensations, movement<br />CEREBRAL CORTEX<br />Wrinkly outer-covering - where neural connections happen<br />FRONTAL LOBE<br />Rational thought, impulse control, planning<br />OCCIPITAL LOBE<br />Visual processing<br />AMYGDALA<br />Located deep inside brain – fight, flight, or freeze<br />TEMPORAL LOBE<br />Hearing, memories<br />
  8. 8. 5 Facts for Learning<br />The <br />The brain seeks and processes INFORMATION<br />The <br />The brain is SOCIAL<br />The brain is EMOTIONAL<br />The brain needs NOURISHMENT<br />The <br />The brain needs SAFETY<br />

  14. 14. Neuron Parts<br />New dendrites GROW and CONNECT as you learn...<br />

The Brain GROWS and SHRINKS<br />20 minutes after you learn something, if you don’t think about it again, you begin to loose those newly formed dendrites.<br />The 10-24-7 rule says that if you study a piece of new information 10 minutes after you first learn it, then again 24 hours later, then again 7 days later, you will commit it to long term memory.<br />Quick Write: What does this mean for your learning?<br />
  16. 16. What will you USE?<br />Final Quick Write:<br />What strategies or information from this lesson will you use to learn more effectively?<br />
