Inspiring Middle School Minds

Inspiring Middle School Minds

Gifted, Creative, and Challenging




Judy Willis, M.D., M.Ed.


Teaching adolescents can be quite challenging. Dr. Judy Willis, a neurologist and teacher, explains the inner workings of the adolescent brain. She uses the findings of brain research to explain how parents and teachers can help students’ motivation and memory, bypassing the “filters” that adolescents often use to block their learning and triggering untapped inspiration.

Middle school education is often a “black hole” for gifted students, seldom providing adequate challenge. By understanding how the brain works, however, we can make learning exciting and stimulating—for all youngsters. The information and advice in this book will help parents and teachers design positive and rewarding learning experiences that will then be stored in long-term memory rather than “deleted” or “filtered out.” This book is a fascinating read about the ways in which the adolescent brain functions, written in such a way as to make the information easily understandable and the suggestions readily accessible—even for folks who aren’t brain surgeons!
