James, Abigail Norfleet; Allison, Sandra Boyd; McKenzie, Caitlin Zimmerman
Corwin
If you're tired of repeating yourself to students who aren't listening, try a little less talk and a lot more action. The authors follow the best-selling "Teaching the Male Brain and Teaching the Female Brain" with this ready-to-use collection of mathematics, language arts, science, and classroom management strategies. Designed for active, hands-on learners--whether male or female--the text provides more than 70 specific lesson plans for addressing students' common challenges, already differentiated to match their experiential learning style. The many benefits include: (1) Increased student engagement; (2) Improved retention of subject matter; (3) Enhanced capacity to focus on tasks; and (4) A more orderly classroom. This resource contains a wealth of examples, visuals, and material that can be easily reproduced in the classroom. Suitable for upper elementary to high school students, lesson plans can be readily adapted to suit your curriculum.
