EDUC 564 Enhancing Brain Development in Children

3 Credits

Are the brains of children different today than they were in the past? According to research and the observations of many educators, the answer is a resounding “yes”. Why do we feel disconnected in a connected world? Is your brain on overload? Do you find yourself too stressed to distress? What about your students? This course is based on the readings of many current related books and articles that address this question. The goal of the course is to help teachers, administrators, support staff, and parents understand how brains develop, what they need to develop, why they are different, and what parents and educators can do to enhance development and counteract the effects of our fast paced society.
