Think-Parents are Powerful Brain Based Training for Parents

Wednesday February 5, 2020

There are few capacity-building models that result in sustainable knowledge for parents, and also create inclusivity and diversity-responsive among Hispanic and disenfranchised parents, their children, and the schools their children attend. Building social-emotional and cognitive capital is needed to support a child’s thinking and learning. In a new research study, the presenter developed and implemented parent training involving brain based learning with Hispanic mothers. The outgrowth of that study is an engaging methodology and a forthcoming book "Andamio: Using Brain Based Learning to Engage Hispanic Families for English Language Learner Academic Success." In this workshop learning experience, you will learn how to: *Enable parents to become partners with their child’s school. *Engage parents and their social networks for thinking and learning improvement *Scaffold brain-based learning activities that help parents develop social capital and emotional responsibilities.
