WHAT WE’VE BEEN READING

Why Teens Should Understand Their Own Brains (And Why Their Teachers and Parents Should, Too!) (NPR) — Human brains are still developing throughout our teenage and early adult years. Knowing more about the way they work can teach us about how schools can work, too. Until relatively recently, it was thought that the brain was only actively developing during childhood, but in the last two decades, researchers have confirmed that the brain continues to develop during adolescence — a period of time that can stretch from the middle school years into early adulthood. The implications for teaching teenagers are important to consider.
