Description: This session will merge brain science of the PASS theory of intelligence with real examples and practicalstrategies to help students and adults think smarter, take charge of their own learning, and meet the challenges of life. Optimal learning and functioning require quality instructional methods based on an understanding of the neuropsychological abilities associated with different regions of the brain. These abilities include: (a) Planning (complex decision making related to the frontal lobe); (b) Attention (focus and resistance to distraction related to the brain stem); (c) Simultaneous processing (understanding inter-relationships related to occipital/parietal area); (d) Successive processing (working with sequential information related to temporal lobes). These brain-based PASS abilities (originally described by A.R. Luria) are the foundation of learning; and, therefore, help us understand successes and challenges in school and life. PASS can be measured using three tools: Cognitive Assessment System – Second Edition (CAS-2); CAS-2 Brief (for speech-language, special education, etc.); and CAS- 2 Rating Scale (for teachers). These tools are used to identify a pattern of strengths and weaknesses which, following from IDEA, provide evidence of a disorder in basic psychological processing. Participants will be able to: Explain the essential role of PASS abilities in learning and the brain Describe how to assess PASS using the three CAS-2 Scales Apply practical strategies to support student use of PASS abilities to be more successful in the classroom and in life Demonstrate how to teach strategies for maximum impact, ownership, and improved performance Explain how PASS theory, as measured by CAS-2, can be used to identify a pattern of strengths and weaknesses which documents a disorder in basic psychological processing
