Are you looking for activities to increase your students' interest in learning? Do you want your students to enjoy learning? I have compiled a booklet containing my favorite activities I use in my Academic Skills Advancement English, writing, and study skills courses. Fifty-nine activities are included. If you are interested in just one of these areas, I have posted the booklets separately: "Creative Activities for All Disciplines," "Challenging the Reluctant Writer," "Getting Down to Business," and "Preparing Students for Success (Study Skills)." I have presented my materials at numerous workshops throughout the United States and have received many positive responses from teachers who have incorporated these activities successfully. When students enjoy learning, they attend regularly and participate more. As one of my students stated, "I would NEVER miss one of your classes because you always have something exciting each class, and I don't want to miss out." Learning doesn't need to be boring, so try my activities and see if your students' view of learning becomes more positive.
