Brain Training

Lyall Watson~If the brain were so simple we could understand it, we would be so simple we couldn't.

Today's Neighborhood News brain training is now in session. We start our schooling with author of the blog Rachelle Writes, Rachelle J. Christensen. As a published author and mother of three, she has a deep passion for both of these interests. In her article, "Reflections on Reading," Rachelle expresses her strong belief in the responsibility parents have to share the magic of the written word with their children. Read her convincing argument why we need to positively influence children to read and the importance of reading to them. If children are our future, let us help them by lighting the way. Books are lighthouses erected in the great sea of time. ~E.P. Whipple

Our next look at brain development is by Bill Klemm, a semi-retired Professor of Neuroscience at Texas A&M University and author of ThankYouBrain. As he puts it, "Brain research is my bag." Klemm has written a facinating post, "Learning Versus Memory." In his comparative look at learning and memory, he offers methods to help improve both of them. Read his observation and see how understanding changes everything.

Our last peek into the brain today is guided by Teaching Tips contributor, Sarah Russel. She addresses learning styles in her article, "The Art of Learning Better: 101 Tips to Find and Fit Your Learning Style." What are the three styles of learning? What tips does Sarah give to help you best learn in your individual style?

What has helped spark your interest in learning? as a child? college? now? Do you worry about improving your memory? What works for you? Do you remember:)
