Cognitive Skills: Understanding Learning Challenges (1 semester credit - Humboldt State University)
We all know brain plays a major role in learning, but few are aware of how. In a class where each child differs in his ability to learn, it is essential that educators know how the brain is related to the process of learning, in order to help facilitate student performance. Such knowledge will also give the educator an advantage when faced with the challenge of teaching a child with special needs. Cognitive Skills is a two part integrated course that will equip educators with extensive knowledge about the process of learning.
The first section, Cognitive Skills: Understanding Learning Challenges, will focus on the skills involved in learning and introduce you to various techniques and strategies on identifying a child with learning difficulties and to overcome their challenges.
