A key to real learning and understanding is student engagement and enjoyment. In "Active Learning", experienced teachers share plans for complete lessons that motivate students through active involvement in the process of learning. Ancient Greece comes alive when students dramatise historical events. Architectural styles translated into movement, sound, and body shapes are easy to remember. Student-created board games make reviewing maths facts fun. This book will assist teacher planning, improve lesson quality, and illuminate your approach to teaching. Measurable objectives, step-by-step procedures, optional teacher scripts, student handouts, evaluation tools, and enrichment activities provide structure for lessons to use in maths, languages, social studies and art. Students are actively learning when they are intensely engaged, mentally or physically. Active learning is vigorous, lively, energetic, intense, strong, and effective. Active learning is involved learning; it takes place when the learners are excited, involved, mentally alert, and caught up in the experience.
