HELPFUL COGNITIVE APPROACHES

8.  Meeting Survival Needs

The brain seeks self-preservation.  Given a choice, it will always choose to conserve energy and maintain dignity.  We are wasting our students’ time if we try to teach them without trying to meet their needs.

Pay attention to whether student get enough sleep, eat nutritious meals, manage stress, get regular exercise, practice good hygiene, and feel connected to their peers.  Model these good habits for students.          Assign daily homework in each of these areas (“Eat five servings              of fruit/veggies tomorrow.”  “Wash you hands before toughing             food and after coughing.”).  This makes a point even if students          don’t do the assignments.
