How to Parent when the Brain Rules with
John Antonetti
Thursday, March 3rd - 7:00 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.
Longfields-Davidson Heights Secondary School
149 Berrigan Drive

Most of us have no idea what's really going on inside our heads - or our children's heads. How do we learn? What exactly do sleep and stress do to our brains? Why is it so easy to forget-and so important to repeat new knowledge? John Antonetti takes us on a journey through the latest brain research in a humorous, interactive workshop that integrates strategy, thinking, and engagement - truly a three-dimensional approach to look at what makes each of our children unique.


Parents looking for resources to help support your child's learning might be interested in the following resources:

ONLINE MATH TOOLS: The OCDSB has recently launched a new suite of tools and resources, organized by grade groupings, to support home and school collaboration in mathematics. These resources help students build skills and stamina and can be used with a parent/guardian or independently at home. Take a look.

NUMERACY GUIDE FOR PARENTS: The OCDSB has an excellent Numeracy Guide for Parents which helps parents understand how math instruction is provided and how students can be supported in their learning at home.

HOMEWORK HELP: Homework Help is an online math help resource for students in Grades 7-10. Homework Help provides FREE, live one-on-one tutoring from Ontario teachers. Homework Help is funded by the Ontario government and administered by TVO. Students can ask their math questions during our chat room hours - Sunday - Thursday 5:30 p.m. - 9:3
