Disseminating Engaged Learning Strategies in the Middle School through Technology.
Andris, James F.; Crooks, Steve M.; Hawkins, G. Colleen
This paper reports on the results of a grant to disseminate engaged learning strategies in the middle school. Three university instructors at Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville worked with eight middle school teachers to integrate Webquests, the Journey North Project, STELLA software, and media literacy into the curriculum. A general process is described, along with three differing approaches for disseminating engaged learning strategies. Some results of the three interventions are given, and a listserv-based process for a final reflection is described. (Author/AEF)
