The Middle School Brain (a 4-minute video)

Here’s an engaging and helpful 4-minute video (from XP3 Middle School Media) on the middle school brain that you can use personally, with your leadership team, and for parents.

In a nutshell:

  • Middle school brains are growing fast, which can result in clutter; keep things simple and be prepared to repeat things more than once.
  • Middle school brains are being affected by a new influx of hormones; be patient, and be ready for unexpected and intense emotions.
  • Middle school brains are gaining new capabilities of perspective and connections; be ready for complex questions, and encourage new ways of thinking.
