Students at The Windward School in White Plains and Harrison are using their brains to advance research on how to improve reading instruction — but not in the way you might think. Twenty-two students in grades 1 to 6 are having their brains imaged by researchers.
Teacher training is a hallmark of The Windward School. As a key partner with Haskins Laboratories and the Haskins Global Literacy Hub, The Windward School is expanding upon its professional development offerings for faculty to include more opportunities to learn from experts in the field of educational neuroscience.
