Het highly effective teaching at clarkdale

Learning Principles of HET

  • 1. Intelligenceis a function of experience.

  • 2. Learning is an inseparable partnership between the brain andbody.

    • Emotion is the gatekeeper to learning and performance

    • Movement is crucial to every brain function including planning and executing, memory, emotion, language and learning.

  • 3. There are multiple intelligences.

  • 4. Learning is a two-step process of developing a pattern and then making it a mental program.

Brain compatible classrooms

Flow of color

Flow of Color

  • Colors that absorb light rather than reflect it are more soothing.

  • Research indicates that calming colors such as blues, greensand browns invite the brain to focus and reflect.

  • Using one main color and one or two accent colors pulls the environment together, minimizes distractions, and provides focus.
