Glenn Whitman, co-author of the book "Neuroteach: Brain Science and the Future of Education," will speak at Lancaster Country Day School, 725 Hamilton Road, Lancaster, at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 16. Whitman will discuss the current educational neuroscience and how parents may best support their children at home.
Whitman's book was written to help teachers understand how the brain receives, filters, consolidates, and applies learning for both the short and long term. The book's aim is to bring the growing body of educational neuroscience research into the designs of schools, classrooms, and work with individual students.
Whitman directs the Center for Transformative Teaching and Learning at St. Andrew's Episcopal School, where he also serves as the dean of studies for preschool through 12th grade and teaches history. Whitman is a former Martin Institute for Teaching Excellence Fellow and is a blogger for Edutopia. He earned his master's degree in liberal studies from Dartmouth College and his Bachelor of Arts from Dickinson College.
