Myths around learning, reading, and the brain can be more common than expected. In this workshop, we will survey the attendees and compare perceptions on the most common brain and behavior myths in education. We’ll follow up with a review of results, comparison to other educators, neuroscience experts, and the general public, and review each idea to understand the scientific basis that does or does not support each one.
This course is appropriate for educators at all levels.
All necessary materials will be shared electronically.

Dr. Joanna Christodoulou leads the Brain, Education, and Mind (BEAM) Team to study the brain and behavior links underlying reading development and difficulty. She is assistant professor at the MGH Institute, adjunct lecturer on Education at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, and research affiliate at MIT. Current research focuses on reading intervention and summer reading growth. She was awarded the 2014 award for Transforming Education Through Neuroscience Award from the Learning & the Brain Foundation and the International Mind, Brain, and Education Society and was invited to join the first White House Workshop on Neuroscience and Learning.
