  8. 11. <ul><ul><ul><li>Understanding the teen brain </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Handling student behaviors </li></ul></ul></ul>
  9. 12. Adolescence is a time of growth and maturation in the brain.
  10. 13. Adolescence is also a time when many new behaviors begin to emerge, most of which irritate and frustrate parents & teachers!
  11. 14. Changes in RISK-TAKING behaviour Changes in ATTENTION Changes in MOTIVATION You might be surprised to learn that many adolescent behaviours are a direct result of brain changes, and are completely normal ! Typical teenage behavioural changes include:
  12. 15. BUT… the prefrontal cortex undergoes massive structural changes during adolescence, and it is one of the last brain areas to mature completely! Many cognitive abilities (including the control of attention) rely on the proper functioning of a part of the brain called the prefrontal cortex . ATTENTION: Are you listening?
  13. 16. In one study, researchers used two tasks to measure attention in adolescents, and performance increased with age. girls boys This might mean that older adolescents have a better attentional capacity than younger adolescents, and that attentional capacity improves as the brain matures. Thank goodness! Anderson et al. (2001) ATTENTION: Improves with age
  14. 17. “ She won’t write her homework! She lives like a animal! I don’t know what to do!” “ I don’t care…” “ I don’t want to…” “ Why won’t he just do what I ask him to do?” “ Leave me alone…” “ He won’t study! Doesn’t he realize that he won’t pass if he doesn’t study?” MOTIVATION: “I don’t care…”
  15. 18. One study looked at the differences in motivation between adults and teenagers. The researchers compared the brain activation of adults and teenagers while they were performing the same task for a reward. Compared to adults , teenagers under-use the brain circuits that are involved in motivation! Bjork et al. (2004) MOTIVATION: Adults vs. Teens
  16. 19. This under-use of the motivational system might be the reason why teenagers need extreme rewards to achieve the same level of brain activity as adults. AND… the difference in brain activity between teenagers and adults can be even LARGER when the reward is not instant. MOTIVATION: “Get Movin’ Kid!”
  17. 20. Most teenagers are more likely to do their homework for a Rs. 50 reward TONIGHT than for a Rs. 500 reward next week! What does this mean for me??
  18. 21. MOTIVATION: It takes time The primary motivation circuit helps promote decision making and helps in the selection of motivational drives for behaviour. The motivational drives that are represented in the primary motivation circuit change during puberty (for example, surges in sex hormones tend to increase sexual motivation). Chambers et al. (2003)
  19. 22. MOTIVATION: It takes time During these developmental changes in motivation circuitry, novelty-seeking and risk-taking behaviours might be promoted. However, as adolescence progresses, teens become increasingly motivated by the things that motivate adults (boring, responsible things like long-term rewards!) Chambers et al. (2003)
  20. 23. Teenagers are known for risk-taking, novelty seeking, reckless behaviour and impulsivity. Believe it or not, some degree of risk-taking in adolescence is normative (and adaptive)! <ul><ul><ul><li>(Spear, 2000) </li></ul></ul></ul>RISK-TAKING
  21. 24. <ul><ul><ul><li>(Spear, 2000) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Risk-taking might allow teens to: </li></ul><ul><li>Explore adult behaviour and privileges </li></ul><ul><li>Accomplish normal developmental tasks </li></ul><ul><li>Learn from their mistakes </li></ul>BUT, risk-taking carries potential for negative outcome!! RISK-TAKING
  22. 25. Adolescence is generally a period of increased impulsivity and risk-taking behaviour, but some teens might be especially prone to engage in such behaviours. RISK-TAKING: What do we do? Galvan et al. (2007) So what do teens NEED?
  23. 26. Teenagers need the influence, patience, understanding and guidance of teachers & parents…
  24. 27. They need reminders of potential consequences and direction toward lesser risks…
  25. 28. And they need appropriate amounts of independence, freedom and responsibility.

Otherwise, you send a clear message to the students that it's OK for them to talk while you are talking, etc. </li></ul><ul><li>Use classroom management techniques before you become irritated, impatient or upset. We are much more powerful when we are centered, when we like out students, and when we view our students with fondness rather than impatience. </li></ul><ul><li>Allow students to save face. When we put students down in front of others, the entire class of students will turn against us. </li></ul><ul><li>Do all you can to feel good about yourself and others on a daily basis. Your attitude will come across to your students, so it is important to be in good mental and physical shape. </li></ul><ul><li>If, by chance, you feel that you have spoken sharply in an attempt to manager your students, own up to it. &quot;Wow, that sounded harsh. Forgive me!&quot; </li></ul><ul><li>Remind yourself: &quot;If teaching were easy, everyone would be doing it.&quot; Teaching in front of a classroom full of students can be challenging, but on the other hand, very rewarding! </li></ul>
  41. 46. Good teaching Teaching Styles New techniques
  42. 47. <ul><li>Good teaching is as much about passion as it is about reason </li></ul><ul><li>Good teaching is about substance and treating students as consumers of knowledge </li></ul><ul><li>Good teaching is about listening, questioning, being responsive, and remembering that each student and class is different </li></ul><ul><li>Good teaching is about not always having a fixed agenda and being rigid, but being flexible, fluid, experimenting, and having the confidence to react and adjust to changing circumstances </li></ul>
  43. 48. <ul><li>Good teaching is also about style </li></ul><ul><li>good teaching is about humor </li></ul><ul><li>Good teaching is about caring, nurturing, and developing minds and talents </li></ul><ul><li>Good teaching is supported by strong and visionary leadership, and very tangible institutional support -- resources, and personnel. </li></ul><ul><li>Good teaching is about mentoring between senior and junior faculty, teamwork, and being recognized and promoted by one's peers </li></ul>
  44. 49. <ul><li>Good teaching is about having fun, experiencing pleasure and intrinsic rewards ... like locking eyes with a student in the back row and seeing the synapses and neurons connecting, thoughts being formed, the person becoming better, and a smile cracking across a face as learning all of a sudden happens. Good teachers practice their craft not for the money or because they have to, but because they truly enjoy it and because they want to. Good teachers couldn't imagine doing anything else. </li></ul>
