This collection of Teaching Tools is suitable for teachers at all levels.
The Exciting Engagement Tools package contains 22 teaching tools designed to bring variety, challenge, surprise, suspense, fun and excitement to the classroom. Along the way they help teachers provide a stimulating learning environment where students learn through ‘doing’ activities - and have FUN while doing it. This helps ensure the teaching outcomes ‘stick’ in the student’s mind.
The need for connection is very important for all children, but especially for teenagers. (Just look at their fascination with social media) Even the ‘loners’ need to connect and this package of 30 cooperative learning tools are a great way of building the people and teamwork skills students will require later in life. (if you look at the Key Selection Criteria for almost any job these days, you will find Key Selection Criteria relating to the ability to work in a team environment and the ability to communicate).
So this package of Cooperative Learning Tools is designed to:
1. Provide teachers with some useful tools they can use to effectively engage students in class.
2. Provide teachers with teaching tools they can teach to students to help them learn how to connect with others.
3. Help teachers teach students how to learn in collaboration with others.
What do you get?
• Tools to develop rapport- the vital key to student/teacher interaction. eg the ‘Don’t Judge’ Tool shows teachers how to deal with poor student behaviour without losing rapport with the student.
• Tools to encourage group interaction. Eg. the ‘Pass The Parcel’ Tool explains how to revise using a fun group activity.
• Tools to teach kids how to work as part of a team eg. the ‘Team Homework’ Tool encourages students to complete their homework on time using team support.
• Tools to satisfy the basic human need for connection in kids in a positive way. eg the ‘Sharing’ Tool helps students understand that their teacher was once a student themselves and faced the same learning hurdles that students face today.
This package of Teaching Tools is designed to help teachers bring creative cooperative learning activities and experiences to their classroom and therefore encourage the students’ skill at connecting with others.
