Program 3

Action Based Learning Lab

Jenks Freshman Academy offers a an educational environment that provides lifelong brain/body connections utilizing specific right/left brain coupled with cardio exercises to positively impact student learning through the Action Based Learning Lab (ABLL.) The program is based upon current brain research by Dr. John Ratey in his book “SPARK – The Revolutionary New Science of Exercise and Brain” and on educational best practices in schools across the country. SPARK is a groundbreaking exploration of the connection between exercise and the brain’s performance that shows how even moderate exercise will supercharge mental circuits to beat stress, sharpen thinking, enhance memory, and much more.

The objective of the ABLL is to provide instruction and activities requiring moderate to vigorous activity for 60-65% of the class time as verified by a portable heart rate monitor. Additionally, students participate in numerous brain-based activities utilizing various sensory-enhancing pieces of equipment to further impact the learning in all subject areas.
