The brain, not hormones, is to blame for the inexplicable behavior of teens. Short term memory increases by about thirty percent during adolescence. The activities teens invest their time and energy in influence what activities they’ll invest in as adults. Teens are ruled far more by their emotions than by logic.

Move it! Discovering Domain and Range with Human Graphs
“The adolescent brain really does want to learn more about the world we live in and less about the student who enters the classroom to collect the attendance, but it values novelty and unpredictability.” (Feinstein, p. 16) Novelty and surprise can be planned for any lesson or content! It gives the same release of dopamine, which brings pleasure, that many adolescents get from risky behavior or addictive habits.
Dog Weight What is an average dog weight? Which dogs are above average weight and which are below average weight? First, we need to know what an average dog’s weight is. Let’s use some different dogs that I know to see what an average weight is.
Charlotte and Buddy Charlotte is an Australian Cattle Dog, she is small for her breed and weighs 34 pounds. Buddy is a Vizsla, he is big for his breed and weighs 62 pounds.
Charlotte and friends Charlotte: 34 pounds Buddy: 62 pounds Rosey (a Wheaton Terrier) weighs 25 pounds. A Boxer she know weighs 60 pounds A Dachshund she knows weighs 15 pounds Norman, another ACD, weighs 50 pounds. A Great Dane down the street weighs 120 lbs.
“Educators need to rethink the role of emotions and acknowledge emotions not just as a piece of life, but as a critical part of learning and memory.” “An educator’s time is better spent focusing on a student’s emotional feelings about the content. It’s difficult for content to override emotion.” “Until the student’s emotional disposition toward a topic changes, info has little chance of making it to memory.” (Feinstein, pgs.56-60)

“Using narratives to explain mathematical concepts resonates because it relates to the structure of stories that children have heard their whole lives. The presentation of the information is familiar, evokes positive memories, and is easy to follow. Studies show that information presented as stories rates as more interesting and has higher content recall than the same information presented in other types of text or verbal formats (Britton, 2008).” (Willis, p. 76)
“A strong cerebellum is essential for efficient problem-solving skills and mental planning. Without regular physical activity, the teen brain gets the signal that the neurons in the cerebellum aren’t as important as neurons in other places and they are in danger of being pruned. Without a strong and healthy cerebellum, that multi-step math problem or essay is harder to do.” (Feinstein, p. 36) Boys have a 14% larger cerebellum than girls. Both benefit from movement, but boys love to be in motion.
