Creating a Body of Knowledge
P. Wolfe (2010) in Brain matters: Translating research into classroom practice reported that the human brain functions through the act of using information in which it has already established a context. Therefore, if information is presented that does not match an established context in the brain; this information will be discarded as useless.
If a child does not have a broad body of knowledge, traditional learning practices become unproductive. This body of knowledge can be built at home as your children participate in YOUR day, or with experiences that are out of their everyday life (field trip), or learning how to deal with hard situations or helping with service projects. This sounds too simple to work but it is the key! It starts a conversation with your child that will last the rest of your life.
