Brain-Friendly Teaching: Tools, Tips and Structures

Kagan Structures to Teach the Way Brains Learn Best!

Brain science and research has direct applications to classroom teaching and learning. We ignore the research at the peril of our own success as well as at the success of our students. Teaching with methods that don't respect brain science is like swimming against the current: teaching is more exhausting, students learn less, and students like class and content less. When we align our teaching with how the brain best learns, we are going with the current. Students learn more, enjoy class more, and teaching is more effortless and enjoyable for us. In this workshop, learn six core principles of brain-friendly teaching. For each principle, you will come away with Kagan Structures, tools, tips, and techniques to make your teaching more brain compatible and more scientifically sound.


Workshop Highlights:
  • Put brain science to work to maximise learning
  • View brain scans showing how brains “light up” with Kagan Structures
  • Master the Kagan Structures that make every lesson brain-friendly
  • Target brain centres for emotion, motivation, memory, attention and thinking
  • Create a safe learning environment where learning, thinking, and creativity flourish
  • Nourish the brain with Number Group Mania!
  • Discover stimuli that boost comprehension and retention of content
  • Apply the six principles of Brain-Friendly Teaching in every lesson!




The content was amazing! I learned so much about the brain and how it functions, and I can’t wait to use this knowledge and new structures to plan my lessons and create engaging, brain-developing activities! I love Kagan!”
— Elizabeth Garza, Secondary English Teacher
“Very Informative about the brain and how it works. Explicit information about the memory systems. Best Workshop I could have attended. Thank you!”
— Lauren Pasterchik, Teacher.
