  11. 13. Active Participatory Learning <ul><li>Children learn through direct hands-on experiences with people, objects, ideas, and events. </li></ul>
  12. 14. Supported by Brain Research <ul><li>New neural pathways are created through new thoughts </li></ul><ul><li>When used repeatedly, connections become stronger, more efficient </li></ul><ul><li>If not used, the connections die out </li></ul>
  13. 15. Active Participatory Learning <ul><li>With HighScope, it’s not just “hands-on”… </li></ul><ul><li>It’s “ minds-on ” learning! </li></ul>
