Shake-Up Call: The Need to Transform K-12 Classroom Methodology

Overview

Traditional, teacher-centered classrooms are not serving the needs of our students.

Overview

Traditional, teacher-centered classrooms are not serving the needs of our students. Their futures will increasingly demand skill sets in the areas of communication, collaboration, and critical thinking; worksheets, videos, and lectures will not prepare them for the challenges they will face in an increasingly-global economy. Shake-Up Call: The Need to Transform K-12 Classroom Methodology calls on educators at every level to challenge the status quo and take risks on behalf of kids.

Ron Nash calls on teachers to move off the stage and become facilitators in a process where students are heavily engaged in their own learning. Teachers need to get kids up, moving, pairing, sharing, and asking questions as they seek to understand content-related information. This book reminds teachers of the importance of feedback in the continuous-improvement process, along with the role of consistency. In order to get students up, moving, and sharing, classrooms must be set up to allow for this movement; Nash includes an appendix full of pictures showing classroom configurations that facilitate movement and academic conversations. The final chapter calls for an end to isolation as teachers move to collaboration and the power of "We."

Editorial Reviews

John Almarode Ph.D
Ron Nash presents a practical, ready-to-use conceptual framework that encourages teachers to reflect on how they set up their learning environments. The ideas and strategies in this book are excellent and will surely shake things up in any classroom, helping every teacher meet the needs of twenty-first-century students. Keeping the reader engaged until the very last sentence, Nash provides a motivating look at how we as teachers can engage our students in their own learning!
Linda Cowgill Emerick
Based on years of careful observations of actual classroom practice and the best of current educational research, Ron Nash uses his abundant common sense to advocate for the education of the whole child—the thinking, growing, talking, moving, socializing real live kid who we find in our classrooms and in our hearts. Read this book. Get pragmatic ideas to implement tomorrow.
