The interactive classroom, practical strategies for involving students in the learning process, Ron Nash ; foreword by John Almarode - electronic book

"Despite what we now know about how the brain works as it relates to learning, there continue to be too many educators who rely on lecture to enable them to "cover the material." Standardized testing has increased the pressure to make students passive participants in what should be an active experience. Students of all ages need structured class time to process information and become actively engaged in the learning process. This book provides strategies for doing just that, as well as solid, effective presentation techniques that enhance educators' instructional and assessment skills and promote student learning. If you want the classroom experience to result in deeper understanding and engagement and the acquisition of new knowledge, then students must become active participants in the learning process. The Interactive Classroom covers many different topics related to how students learn best, including classroom management, participant interaction, relationship-building, and the use of music in the classroom. New to this edition is an emphasis on best uses of technology, project-based learning, and formative assessment. The tools and techniques can be used in classrooms from elementary through secondary and can also be utilized by school leaders in faculty meetings and workshops and by instructional specialists and coordinators in training seminars. The author emphasizes how the brain can be activated by using various senses, intelligences, and abilities"--, [Publisher]
