Motivating Your Most Challenging and Reluctant Learners
The Reptilian Brain
The more ancient brain, the one that evolved 1st is called the Reptilian brain or limbic system.
This is the part of the brain that controls the "fight or flight" complex. When significant stress occurs, the chemical-electrical pulses which allow communication between the limbic system and neo-cortex are so overwhelmed that communication between the systems shuts down. It tends to be more dominant when a person is under stress or feels threatened:
ASKING A STUDENT TO PERFORM ON THE SPOT
When a student is placed in a stressful environment, it becomes difficult for the abstract thought in the neo-cortex to take place. The body goes into "fight or flight."
Students who are constantly living with a stressful situation may develop their Reptilian brain and react in confrontational ways that reflect "fight or flight."
What can teachers do to combat Reptilian brain?
Think, pair, share
Small group interaction
Write a question on the front of your card. Then write the answer on the back of your card. Raise your hand and find another person who is raising theirs. Ask your question to your partner and let them answer. Switch. Raise your hand when you're finished. Then find a new partner with whom you will share your new question.
