Brain Fact or Fiction: Neuromyths that Persist

About This Webinar

How much do you know about the brain? Can you separate brain facts from brain fiction?
Brain fiction, or neuromyths, can lead us to ineffective or even counterproductive strategies as parents, teachers, and students. Misconceptions about the brain continue. Research indicates that most of what teachers are sure they know about the brain is simply wrong! It's time to set the record straight, separate the wheat from the chaff, and send those neuromyths on their way.

This webinar will identify common myths about the brain, what the correct information is and why the difference is important.
