Worksheets Don't Grow Dendrites : 20 Instructional Strategies That Engage the Brain: stars based on 1 user reviews.
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.
