Details of Major Brain Awareness Week Events/Activities:

I disseminated information via our newsletter for our partnering teachers the BAW information from your website. I tied it into our federal grant evidence based curriculum lessons. For example, The official week for the next BAW is March 11th-17th, 2019, but any week is a good time to get involved! As our knowledge of the brain grows, so too does the opportunity to use this information to promote the well-being of our youth. When we help adolescents to learn how to build relationships in healthy ways, we aid them in developing values and skills to build strong, stable relationships! Bring brain awareness to your classroom by presenting one of your lesson plans!
