3-D Literacy has several options for professional development workshops for teachers.
This interactive workshop for teachers and parents will explore the memory formation process and the arts as an invaluable tool in teaching. Participants will learn about the stages of memorization, experience what it is like to be a neuron and take part in several lessons supported by brain-based learning theories. Researchers believe that the more meaningful the association of encoded information, the more likely for it to be remembered. The arts help create sense, meaning, and emotional connection to what is being taught.
“Richard Grunn's "The Arts, the Brain and Learning" is a wonderful opportunity for people of all ages to learn about the different types of learning that enhance human consciousness. Audiences participate in thoughtful and humorous theatrical vignettes with homemade props that highlight thought processes, associations and other functions of higher learning that build intelligence and compassion for the human experience. “ Charlie Vasquez Deputy Director Bronx Council on the Arts
