See brain chemicals, experiences and genetics
that all play key roles in learning outcomes.
Students love whole brain task cards – to activate learning on any topic.
Best for grades 9 through 12+ where you wish to turn talks or texts into tasks that engage students and apply content. The 100 neuro-related ways to expand on What if… kinds of actions to diversify and help students understand key lesson concepts.
Task cards support CCSS student-led active learning requirements,
because learners complete tasks individually and with peers.
Why not post your lecture notes online or pass out hard copies as reference materials.
Divide students into teams, and have them choose how to learn the materials, by requiring them to identify 5 prompts evident in their outcomes. Then have them each submit one key question (with a response) – that they would expect to see on a test of the lesson material.
Some faculty use task cards to encourage student-generated questions.
Students can get ideas from task cards and then create their own questions. Ensure that each team shows evidence of engaging the materials, and that each team member leaves the tasks with authentic evidence of an ability to use and apply the topic.
The list of tasks included here can also be used as a record of student progress.
Have students check off their chosen tasks, so they will be required to use different approaches to learn each time. This list will last for an entire term of active, and student led learning, where learners navigate the materials and generate their own great questions.
Hopefully these ready-to-roll brain-based materials
will benefit your learners and leaders as they do mine at middle, secondary, university levels and beyond.
Do follow my TpT site
and keep up with brain-friendly materials to enhance your class.
