“I’ve taught ‘thinking skills’ for 20 years, but BrainWise put all the skills into one program. It is a powerful teaching tool.” – High school teacher

In 1995, Dr. Barry and several instructors piloted the BrainWise for Grades 6-12 to at-risk youth in Denver middle and high schools. She served as the lead teacher, experiencing first-hand the challenges facing teachers, counselors and students. Daily classroom contact with inner-city teens and feedback from teachers and other students helped her make BrainWise a teacher-friendly and student-receptive program, centered around a scripted curriculum designed to make BrainWise easy to teach, even by peer educators and community volunteers.

In response to requests from mentors, counselors, and social workers who work individually with youth, Dr. Barry developed BrainWise One-on-One. After program graduates lamented, “I should have learned this in grade school,” Dr. Barry, again working with teachers and in the classroom, developed BrainWise for Grades K-5. A companion piece for parents and a curriculum for severely disabled students have also been developed.

The BrainWise materials were designed to be affordable and reproducible and learning- based activities were created for easy integration into literature, history, social studies, and science courses, as well as experiences and topics inside and outside the classroom.

The BrainWise curricula contain scripted lesson plans, and reproducible, age-appropriate worksheets that can be used to teach children, teens, and adults. The materials are available for group and individual teaching, and include reinforcement activities, checklists, a review guide, laminated posters and cards featuring the 10 Wise Ways.
