HELPFUL COGNITIVE APPROACHES

4.  Hydration

When students are dehydrated, their conversation isn’t always clear or relevant, they aren’t fully engaged, they may slump from fatigue, and they are often cranky.  

The myelin sheath that envelops each neuron in the brain must stay hydrated to continue to perform its two tasks:  to provide support          and protection for the neuron and to conduct the sodium-              potassium ion pump that moves the impulse down the length of             the axon.  Hydrated neurons keep the myelin sheath functioning          well, which opens more opportunities for learning.  If we water           them, they will grow.  :  )
