  • How does teaching students about their own brains affect their behavior?
  • What are some ways educators can teach students about their brains?
  • What are the best ways for students and teachers to reduce cortisol levels to help their stress levels?
  • What are some simple brain-aligned activities that help students succeed as learners?
