About the Session

Did you know that the brain has a backdoor for accelerated learning that is easily hacked into? Using brain science as a road map, discover how to target instruction to “backdoor” social-emotional learning systems that transform hard phonics skills into child’s play! Harness the instructional power of “what’s used together becoming fused together” in the brain to provide warp-speed access to all of the code-based skills kids need to read and write. Take advantage of learning loopholes rooted in brain plasticity and take away brain-changing knowledge and teaching tools that will leave you armed and ready for Monday morning!

About the Presenters

Katie Garner

Katie Garner, M.Ed. (author of best-selling book, Secret Stories® Cracking the Reading Code with the Brain in Mind) is an internationally known keynote speaker, author and literacy consultant with thirty years of experience working in elementary grade classrooms across the country, and a passion for infusing neuroscience into literacy and learning! Katie's “backdoor-to-the-brain” approach to fast-tracking phonics skills for reading, via social-emotional learning systems, shifts the paradigms associated with beginning literacy skill instruction. Her fast-paced, dynamic presentations spotlight brain-changing strategies for boosting existing reading curriculum and phonics instruction with the latest reading science showing how our brains learn best. Katie's practical and proven methods for bringing neuroscience into the forefront of literacy and learning have been the subject of numerous professional journal articles, and have been shared in both lecture and panel discussions at Harvard University and MIT. https://www.KatieGarner.com
