From Seatwork to Feetwork: Engaging Students in Their Own Learning
Nash, Ron
How do you teach students to communicate, collaborate, and solve problems? In his engaging style, Ron Nash shows teachers how to create a student-centered environment that transforms learners from passive attendees into active participants and leaders in the classroom. Building on the foundation of his prior works on active learning, he combines his classroom experience with the latest brain-based research on movement, memory, and learning. This collection of practical strategies helps teachers: (1) Redesign classroom space to facilitate collaboration, conversation, and participation; (2) Create engaging, active, and project-based instruction; (3) Connect classroom learning with real-world workplaces; (4) Implement best practices for facilitating collaboration among students; and (5) Foster 21st-century skills.
