Getting the Most from Your Brain (5 weeks)

This follows on the basic structure, chemistry, and functioning of your brain covered in last semester's class; but the previous class is not required to profit from this course.  Here, we will consider a kind of "user's guide" to your brain based on current research, including:

  • How to keep it physically healthy and sharp
  • How to keep yourself safe given the immaturity of some structures of the adolescent brain
  • Understanding the sensation-seeking, risk-taking, and importance of peer relationships
  • The role of parents and other adult guides to keep yourself between the lines on the road
  • How to improve your attention and why you cannot multi-task (no one can!)
  • The importance of emotion to learning and memory
  • How your brain forms memory
  • How good teachers use current brain research to improve student learning

 

Every Penny Counts (5 weeks)

We focus so much on developing our children—emotionally, socially, spiritually, and intellectually. And now the next level of development—financial responsibility. WIth Ms Emilie, students will learn about budgeting, credit cards, credit scores, interest rates, the stock market, investing, loans, and more. They will have the opportunity to create a mock stock portfolio and “play” the stock market and create their own personal life financial plan. After all, those who fail to plan, plan to fail. It is not too early for students to become financially wise; this class pays big dividends, and it’s lots of fun too!

 

The Creative Genius in You (6 weeks)

You have the recipe for greatness in your soul. Whether it’s expressed with water paints or widgets, you are creative. Feeding your creative side reaps rich long-term rewards—studies show that it correlates with greater professional success later in life, whether or not you pursue a field that is typically thought of as “creative”. Think about Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos, and Einstein- all highly creative people who found success in the sciences. However, like a flame, creativity needs to be fanned, fed, encouraged.

 

In our world today, creativity is easily squashed; it must be handled with care, like a living thing. So, how can you strengthen your creative side? Some answers may surprise you. For example, sleeping is a necessity, along with uninterrupted alone time, an element of artistic collaboration, and other powerful habits. Join us as we study the most creative minds of all time, study their habits, develop our own healthy habits, and discuss the science of creativity. Set yourself apart in the world; nourish your creative side and become a creative genius.
