Keys to Increasing Comprehension in the Age of Common Core (Timothy Rasinski)
Comprehension is the goal of reading. To get there readers must master the foundational skills (Common Core), but research shows that a substantial number of poor comprehenders have not yet mastered these. In this webinar, Dr. Timothy Rasinski will share proven, effective, and engaging strategies for helping students lay a solid foundation for reading success and comprehension.
.
Building the Brain's "Air Traffic Control" System: Executive Function Skills
Young children depend on their emerging “executive function skills” to navigate the classroom and the playground, but what are these skills and why do they matter? Join Dr. Jenkins as he reviews the three dimensions of executive function (inhibitory control, working memory, cognitive flexibility) and examines the development of these skills across childhood.
.
The Parent Trap: When & How Parents Can Help a Struggling Learner
From reading to social studies, most of our children need outside support with school. As a parent, how much help is too much? Learn from Dr. Burns how to support your child to become a motivated, independent learner with the confidence and cognitive control to take on academic tasks of all kinds, even science projects.
.
Brain Myths in Education: Making Sense of Fact vs. Fiction
The brain and learning are hot topics in education, but it's difficult to know whom or what to believe. Join Drs. Burns and Jenkins as they discuss what's true and false about the brain and education and why it all matters. Test how much you know and walk away with practical information to apply at your school with your students the next day!

Reading and the Adolescent Brain: What Works?
In middle and high schools across the country, educators are baffled by their students’ lack of improvement in reading despite repeated intervention. In this webinar, you will learn why so many adolescents plateau, what is happening in their brains at this time of great change, and what you can do to move students forward once and for all.
.
The Hidden Reason Your Child Struggles to Read
Join Dr. Martha Burns as she discusses a very common, but somewhat elusive problem that impacts many children’s ability to read: poor auditory processing. She will discuss the latest research on the brain and reading and explain why so many bright students still struggle to unlock the reading code. Joining her will be a parent to discuss her child’s progress and results with the BrainPro program.
.
What's in the Common Core, but Missing in Your Curriculum
Hear from Dr. Burns about the fundamental, and sometimes “hidden” skills students need to meet English language arts and math standards. These skills, mentioned in the Common Core, are considered by some to be more important than content knowledge, but are not always given the attention they deserve. Join us to learn how to build these skills in your students.
.
What Do Neuroscientists Know About Learning that Educators Don't?
Dr. Paula Tallal discusses the latest neuroscience research on learning, her original research on auditory processing and language, and the classroom application of these scientific findings to help struggling learners succeed.
