Brain literacy is creating alertness of brain’s sensors to pick things and situation and create understanding as how to behave.That means developing picking power of pupils or students,orientation of thought and mindedness towards class work or a dynamic situation to understand.
Human is born without most innocence, unawareness and unused powers,which gradually change into a responsive, alert and perception oriented personality.
First brain literacy a human gets from his mothers’ lap, who literate a baby towards life. First training towards making baby`s mind alert, capable and receptive of understanding. Constant supervision of a mother, makes a child intelligent before starting his/her school. She guides her child to understand sounds, colors and feeling and create response.Main brain literacy is being taught at home.
More detailed efforts are expected from a teacher in class room to build literacy of children’s mind. A teacher will start developing a student’s brain by deliver sounds, pictures, making sense about colors, shapes, words and digits. Day to day efforts of a teacher makes children mind responsive, alert and creative. They start filling colors, recognizing sounds and making shapes.
When children start sharing and adding, showing attitudes and reactions, liking and disliking , teacher feel the need to prepare him/her more to adjust every child as per his/her mental state and speed of understanding things and generating response.Which developing an empty mind is task with great pressure, patience as well as responsibility. Teacher taught child, individual’s aspects of life about which she/he was helpless if the teacher does not make effort.
At elementary level, teacher helps students to gain literacy and development of mind through:
