Active Learning Across the Content Areas by Wendy Conklin
Turn your classroom into an active learning environment today and use the strategies in this book to actively engage students in creating their own knowledge. Each strategy is research based, involves higher-order thinking skills, and promotes a multi-modal approach to help students develop an understanding of content-area topics. This resource provides not only "hands-on" activities, but "heads-on" activities as well. The active learning strategies provided in this book can be implemented to teach any content and include a description of each strategy, how to implement it in the classroom, assessment ideas, and ways to extend the strategy.
