Moving our Culture – Schools and Families Learning Together

The title for this speech was originally “Moving our School Culture”.  But, as the sentences formed on the page, I realized that the concepts apply equally to home and school.  We believe not only that changing our culture is imperative, but also, that schools and families must work together to ensure the success of these changes.

What we now know about how the brain develops and how children learn gives us a great opportunity to improve our teaching and parenting methods.  Brain-based learning, multiple intelligences, personalized learning and self-regulation are just some of the terms we use to represent this expanded knowledge.  This knowledge base is also increasing very rapidly.  We must develop strategies to respond to this new knowledge on a continuous basis.
