In this training and support packet of materials, you will find a powerpoint presentation that can be used for a professional learning community session, a focused faculty meeting, and/or a professional development session. There are a total of fourteen slides which encourage teachers to shift students into "high gear" thinking. The slides focus on the point that as long as students are involved in only memory and recall then they have trouble with "low gear" thinking! The point is made to involve students in "high gear" engaging activities, and they will grasp and retain much more than when asked to simply recall. This training presentation is a "jumping off point" into constructing/creating engaging teaching and learning activities!
