    For Homeschoolers: Strenghts-Based Learning in the Home Part #2

    For Homeschoolers: Strenghts-Based Learning in the Home Part #2

    Today's guest, Marianne Sunderland, is the mother of 7 children who have reading and learning difficulties when it comes to traditional schooling, and one child who is like her mom and thrives with traditional school work. Her website HomeschoolingwithDyslexia.com offers resources and encouragement to parents who homeschool "outside the box" learners. Do you lack confidence in your homeschool program? Do you have lots of materials and curriculum that sit on a shelf because they just don't work for your kids? Are you afraid that you are not doing the right things or that your child is missing out on important learning that might take place in the traditional school setting? In this 2-part series Marianne and Mariaemma discuss the benefits of creating a strengths-based learning program that allows your child to focus on his/her interests, talents, and passions, and meets learning needs specific to his/her Dispositions, Modalities, and Environment. With this approach confidence is instilled in both student and teacher (you), because it allows all students to thrive and develop to their fullest potentials, as they discover and apply their strengths in daily learning as well as goal-setting and career exploration.

    The Brain & Learning Part 2

    The Brain & Learning Part 2

    In this episode Edie Lanphar and Mariaemma discuss the Neuroscience of Learning. When students are upset—frustrated, angry, sad, discouraged—a stress response occurs that tells the adrenals to release chemicals that affect the emotional regulation center of the brain. The brain then prepares to fight, flee, freeze, or fawn and the "thinking brain" basically goes off-line. Edie explains how this happens and how parents and teachers can model strategies for balancing the emotions, and get the thinking brain back online so that real learning can take place.

    The Brain & Learning Part 1

    The Brain & Learning Part 1

    Edie Lanphar is back with Mariaemma to discuss the connection between learning strengths and social-emotional learning. Knowing how to identify feelings, interests, values, and strengths leads to self-confidence, one of the key ingredients for successful learning AND life experiences. Teaching students how to regulate their emotions is also an important ingredient in the equation that leads to effective learning practices . Edie shares how crucial it is for parents and teachers to understand the important role emotions have—to either facilitate or hinder learning.
