Very good textbook  March 21, 2011
by


This book is great if you want 20 specific ideas for injecting new way to learn in your classroom. It is not an all to nothing approach; just try one new thing while maintaining you own teaching style. Those teachers who are stuck in their own methods and fearful of sharing control of the learning with their students will have a hard time with this book.

Summary

What could be more frustrating for teachers than teaching an important lesson and then having students unable to recall the content just 24 hours later?In this new edition of Marcia Tate's best-selling "Worksheets Don't Grow Dendrites", her 20 field-tested, brain-compatible instructional strategies that maximize memory and minimize forgetting are supported by new classroom applications and research throughout. Each short chapter is devoted to one of the strategies and includes: the brain research and learning style theory undergirding the strategy, sample classroom activities utilizing the strategy, and reflection/action planning steps. As Tate's many workshop participants worldwide can attest, using these strategies will not only help students retain content and increase motivation but will also improve the classroom environment.
