View Details Register

Learning to think is a process of acquiring language through the Neuro-Semantic Language Learning Theory (NsLLT). Therefore, helping a student learn to use language also helps the student increase the student’s level of thinking. An educational focus on the wholeness of language function parallels the synergy of how the brain learns and improves overall student learning. Participants will engage in activities that show how to focus on language function across students and subjects to shift the educational focus from working on parts to facilitating the student’s learning, as a whole. Applications to the classroom as well as special populations will be provided. This workshop will show how to include all learners in better thinking for better academic, social, and behavioral learning. Intermediate Level.
