One of the best teacher cartoons I have seen had as it's caption - "That was the most awesome worksheet I ever filled out!" - Said No Student Ever! If you have purchased this resource you are one of those who realize that students learn when they are energized, active, and engaged in their learning. In fact, Robert Marzano's research indicates that student discussion, cooperative learning, and movement are some of the strategies for increasing student achievement. This resource, along with others in our Student Engagement series offers strategies that incorporate these into the lesson design.
Each strategy in the resource follows a similar format:
TEACHER INTRODUCTION SHEETS:
A basic description providing an overview of the activity
A step-by-step list of the procedures used in the strategy guides teachers through implementation.
Instructions to complete the strategy
Templates to copy for student work
Strategies may be used to address a variety of content standards and are adaptable to any content area.
