Member Sponsored Briefing with BrainFutures: Using Neuroscience to Improve Outcomes for Kids
This program is at capacity and is no longer accepting registrations. Please add your name to the waitlist and we will contact you if space opens up.
Join John Cammack for a member-sponsored briefing to learn about innovative, neuroscience-based opportunities to prime children’s brains for learning.
A recent report from BrainFutures analyzed 42 evidence-based classroom programs that target students’ executive function skills, identifying some that yielded impressive gains in proficiency on state standardized tests and school-administered tests, increases in prosocial behaviors, and/or reductions in disruptive behaviors.
Participants will learn from an expert about the neuroscience underlying executive function skills and why students living in poverty can especially benefit from strengthening those skills; hear from a Baltimore City teacher who has successfully implemented an executive function skills curriculum; and discuss strategies for integrating proven programs into Maryland schools.
This program is for Maryland Philanthropy Network members and invited guests only.
