STAR Education’s Resource Station utilizes its staff of diverse educational and professional backgrounds and partners with amazing talent, universities, and government agencies to provide dynamic, hands-on professional development programs for classroom instructors teaching Kinder through 8th grade. Teachers and administrators can select topics from our extensive catalogue of workshops and customize a day of experiential, brain-blitzing activities that will challenge the unique needs and talents of their students.
For the 2014-2015 school year, the STAR Resource Station is highlighting their professional development series Why the Grey Matters, which focuses on the foundational elements of early brain development and equips teachers with a tool box of skills for applying that knowledge to their classrooms as well as their own personal lives. Considered by some to be “the best professional development program they’ve attended in 15 years” this program empowers teachers as “Neurosculptors” and gives them the skills to work with the developing brains of tomorrow. Why The Grey Matters has been approved by the University of Southern California to provide Continuing Education Units through the USC Rossier School of Education.
