This sensible, invigorating book offers lesson plans and practical suggestions for stimulating active learning and creating learning opportunities in new ways. It directs teachers to simple methods of inspiring a questioning attitude that will help students master skills, acquire information, and become critically aware of their own possibilities as learners. The book shows teachers how to encourage students to:
grapple with problems that interest them and share new understandings
represent their new understanding in drama and movement, visual arts, and electronic media
share leadership in groups as they talk through ideas
engage in ideas that force them to rethink what they know
reflect on how, what, why and when they are learning
Teachers will find engaging entry points and proven strategies they can use, and a refreshed and revitalized view of everyday teaching they will love.
