"Deeper Learning: 7 Powerful Strategies for In-Depth and Longer Lasting Learning "focuses on a systematic, reflective approach that develops learning and comprehension of content at a deeper level. Incorporating the most current cognitive brain research, this book provides teachers with a framework and specific strategies for incorporating powerful content processing techniques into everyday instruction.Eric Jensen and LeAnn Nickelsen present the Deeper Learning Cycle, an instructional model that embraces brain research, standards, and individual learning differences. This learning cycle walks teachers through the primary steps of learning, illustrates how to embed deeper learning processing activities into daily lessons, and demonstrates how to use specific strategies to meet students' individual needs. Teachers will learn to: * Apply the Deeper Learning Lesson Plan template to daily instruction * Use over 50 deeper learning strategies to differentiate instruction and help students process content in meaningful ways * Employ the Deeper Learning Cycle to pre-assess students' prior understanding and evaluate acquisition of in-depth learning
