PASADENA ISD EDUCATION FOUNDATION MINI-GRANT
Applicants: Mario Garza, Summer Bradley
Mini-Grant Name: Making Learning a Moving Experience That Gets Results
Abstract: Action Based Learning Lab (ABLL) uses kinesthetic teaching strategies for specific academic concepts with proven results. Students engaged in ABLL improve memory retention, reinforce academic concepts and balance brain chemicals while experiencing whole-brain and whole-body learning. The ABLL concepts are based on brain research supporting the link of movement and physical activity to increased academic performance. Motor development provides the framework the brain uses to sequence the patterns needed for academic concepts. With proper development and remediation, ABLL will help address gaps in learning, especially among minority students and second-language learners.
Sponsor: Memorial Hermann
