All teens today, born after 2000, were thrust into a world with challenges and opportunities non-existent for previous generations. The compelling natures of the internet and social media, combined with the accelerated accumulation of information and changing facts, place exceedingly high demands on their brains' still developing critical control centers. Without guided opportunities, though, their brains will not achieve adequate capability to develop these control centers until their late twenties or beyond. While this book is for teens, it is parents, dedicated to their children's success, who will guide them to the book's resources so they can develop the brain circuits they need now, instead delaying a further ten years. Teens will enjoy learning about the neuroscience describing how their brains learn best and then choosing the activities they like, to activate their brain's neuroplasticity to build their essential control networks now. Through the activities and keys in this book, they will assume the drivers' seats as they boost their focus, organization, planning, motivated effort, thoughtful decision making, emotional self-regulation, and memory construction. As teens build the brains they want by using the guided skills they choose, they will embark on the path to achieving their highest potentials, effectively and joyfully.

With the implementation by teens of the book's 20 Keys, the future of our young workforce and eventual leaders is brighter than ever. -- Wayne Carley, Publisher, STEM Magazine Sometimes, it's easy to think teens aren't using their brains at all. This impressive book shows that in reality, teens have everything they need to use their brains more efficiently. Full of science-backed tips, it's a must-read for all parents and their teens to help navigate the tumultuous teenage years. -- Esta Pratt-Kielley, NBC Universal, Assistant Producer NBC News Learn Parent Toolkit Dr. Judy Willis is a unicorn -- a brilliant neuroscientist, savvy educator, compassionate parent, and skilled writer who can translate the inscrutable language of brain research into helpful tactics for normal people. Teen Brainpower will empower teens to weather the stormy seas of adolescence with solid research-based strategies for optimizing this critical time in their development. -- Betty Ray, former director of Programming and Innovation, EDUTOPIA; If you have a teenager, work with teenagers, or even just know a teenager: Unlocking Teen Brainpower: 20 Keys to Boosting Attention, Memory, and Efficiency is for you. Equipped with comprehensive expertise, and a deep understanding of the human condition, Dr. Willis easily navigates the winding roads of neuroscience, and surfaces with insightful takeaways and tangible advice for every reader. The real power in Dr. Willis' work is in her ability to push every person's thinking on just how much the human brain - specifically, their own - can accomplish. Working with Dr. Willis has been one of the greatest gifts of my professional career, but the biggest impression she's left on me has been a personal one - expanding my perception of my own capabilities. Dr. Willis is refreshingly kind, intellectually honest and an invaluable thought leader in the education space. It's been a privilege to learn from Dr. Willis. I only hope you give yourself the same opportunity. -- Gabbi Timmis, NBC Universal, Assistant Producer NBC News Learn Parent Toolkit In the 1970s we had Judy Bloom, a warm, caring voice who spoke to teens in a way they could understand and who served as a friend and guide. Fifty years later, in 2020 we have Judy Willis who does the same for the youth of today. In a clear and coherent voice, Dr. Willis makes concrete recommendations in a way that teens can relate to and offers suggestions that are sure to make a difference to those who are willing to help themselves. Anxiety, stress, technology, peer pressure, mental health...Challenges we have had for decades are now, finally, openly discussed. Willis offers teens concrete steps to take charge by establishing focus (identifying what tips their attention), planning and organizing (rather than becoming hostage to others' agendas) and identifying ways to manage their own emotions by understanding how feelings change how we act, react and learn. She then guides teens in the ways they can improve their decision-making networks in a pro-active, forward looking approach. Her recommendations are finalized by a chapter on Memory as she explains how they are formed as well as their vital role in all learning. Her work is practical and encouraging. She offers specific ideas about how to better encode information so as to enhance retrieval and does so in a calming, friendly voice. While many reco
