Description

This exciting, practical guide offers teachers easy-to-implement strategies that help students draw personal meaning from the curriculum. Filled with great tips for engaging learners, this book is a must for any teacher. The authors show how a variety of strategies—cooperative learning, direct instruction, inquiry, reflective writing, and experimentation—can be used to help learners bond with the content. Consider this a teacher-friendly guidebook for creating moments of genuine student understanding and comprehension. For example, this book offers lessons in which students:play the part of television reporters, interviewing other students about content they have learned; create visually complex pictures and graphs to represent information or concepts; use mathematical symbols to capture their understanding of relationship and events inherent in the content; and play a classroom version of the old television game show, "The $10,000 Pyramid," to identify patterns and seek meaning. Each strategy explored in this book provides a unique type of "e-moment" (engaging moment) that connects with students through their learning preferences and styles. Across the curriculum, teachers will learn how to better engage students and increase comprehension by adapting these strategies to their own specific needs.
