    Cultivate Authentic Engagement with Brainpower and Cultural Awareness

    Your kids may be doing the work, but are they authentically engaged? How can you intentionally support them as they take charge of their learning?

    An effective way for our students to become insightful is by teaching them about the brain. When they gain self-awareness and understand how the brain works, they can take charge of their learning and embrace productive struggle.
