Understanding what happens in the teenage brain may become a useful tool in the hands of a teacher. We already know that the teenage brain is “work in progress” – it is going through a rapid development during adolescence. We also know that it is the period in human life in which the brain achieves its peak potential and may achieve the highest levels of performance. Teenage years are the time when the brain works most effectively and very fast in comparison to adults, including, among others, intelligence tests and memory. The key word here is “may”.
For the most effective learning to take place we need a few guiding principles – and a few tips - on how to help our students grow and flourish, and enjoy their company – as they do have a lot to offer to us, adults. However, teenage students also need our help in achieving their potential – no matter if we teach present simple or conditionals, it helps to know what makes them tick.
