EDUA 5373 The Human Brain

Many consider the human brain, the source of all emotion, thinking, and behavior, too complex to be fully understood. Luckily this is not the case and a teacher can learn about the inner workings of a child’s brain, which has many positive impacts on student success, classroom management, and relationship building.

This course is designed to demystify the workings of a child’s brain, providing the teacher with insight into how the brain works, their students’ neurobiological stages, and how to understand children’s thoughts and behaviors through a neurological lens.
