S.M.A.R.T. - Stimulating Maturity through Accelerated Readiness Training (Introduction)
Limited Capacity filling up

S.M.A.R.T. is a developmental approach to teaching that focuses on stimulation of the brain stem verses the brain cortex, the area where most curricula is focused. The brain stem is where all automatic function takes place, such as our eyes moving smoothly back and forth across the page as we read or the ability to look from the desk to the board and back to the desk without interruption. When the brain stem has been stimulated so that it's fully operational, the stem is able to do its automatic function work and that allows the cortex to do its own important work, like comprehension and analysis.
