Anne Green Gilbert Summer Intensive

~ Sensing ~ Connecting ~ Moving ~          

Join Anne Green Gilbert and Dionne Kamara (2 week Foundational Course) and Terry Goetz and Anna Mansbridge (1 week Refresher Course) and guest faculty as they share the philosophy of brain-compatible teaching and the power of the BrainDance. Through movement and discussion, participants experience sample lessons based on Anne Green Gilbert's patently successful five-part conceptual lesson plan and the brain-compatible principles that underpin it. Discover how incorporating these principles into your teaching and workplace can positively affect class management, behavior, learning, and focus. A wide variety of afternoon workshops will extend participants’ knowledge and experience.
