About this learning opportunity

Did you know that the brain has a backdoor for learning that’s easily hacked into? Using brain science as a road map, discover how to transform hard letter sounds and phonics skills into child's play by targeting “backdoor” social and emotional systems for learning! Fast-Track individual letter sound mastery in just two weeks to two months by harnessing the instructional power of “what’s used together becoming fused together” in the brain. Take advantage of learning loopholes rooted in brain plasticity and discover why “what's used together becomes fused together" in the brain. Hack into our system for learning with powerful teaching tools that will leave you armed and ready for Monday morning!

About the facilitator(s)

KATIE GARNER, M.Ed., (author of best-selling book, Secret Stories® Cracking the Reading Code with the Brain in Mind) is an internationally known educational speaker, author, and literacy consultant with over twenty five years of experience in elementary grade classrooms, and a passion for infusing neuroscience into literacy and learning. Her “backdoor-to-the-brain” approach to phonics instruction, via the affective (social-emotional) feeling domain, shifts the paradigms associated with traditional reading skill mastery and is the topic of an ongoing keynote series at the Vulnerable Readers Summits with North American literacy leaders, Dr. Richard Allington (What Really Matters for Struggling Readers) and Dr. Anne Cunningham (National Early Literacy Panel “NELP” Report). Katie’s dynamic presentations spotlight brain-changing strategies for boosting existing reading curriculum and phonics instruction with the latest neural research showing how our brains learn best. Her practical and proven methods for bringing neuroscience into the forefront of literacy and learning have been shared in both lecture and panel discussions at Harvard University and MIT as part of the Learning and the Brain Conference and Research Consortium, and are the subject of an upcoming professional development book series
