    • Based upon Brain Research
    • Three Brain Networks:
      Recognition
      How we gather facts and categorize what we see, hear, and read. Identifying letters, words, or an author's style
      are recognition tasks.
    • Three Brain Networks:
      Strategic
      Planning and performing tasks. How we organize and express our ideas. Writing an essay or solving a math problem are strategic tasks.
    • Three Brain Networks:
      Affective
      How learners get engaged and stay motivated. How they are challenged, excited, or interested. These are affective dimensions.
    • Adapting the Curriculum – accommodating all students
      Reaches all Learners
