Getting Active in the Classroom
Yerigan, Tanya
Journal of College Teaching & Learning, v5 n6 p19-24 Jun 2008
This paper presents active learning theory and how implementation of dynamic instruction strategies can transform the K-12 classroom. A multi-part study was conducted to determine both the level of active learning knowledge among participants and applicability of newly acquired approaches within the participants' classrooms. First, teachers were surveyed regarding their knowledge of active learning; second, they were educated on the concept and trained in methods; third, participating instructors implemented active learning techniques; and, fourth, participants were surveyed after conducting a minimal number (one active learning activity a week for six weeks) of lessons that integrated active learning theory. The goals of this study were to assess the level of readiness of the K-12 teacher to implement active learning, educate them on active learning, have them utilize active learning principles and share the results.
