What to do when their feet just can't keep still

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:

- Increased student engagement

"James, Allison, and McKenzie provide teachers with concrete lessons that engage students, as well as research-based background on why these activities are needed. The included lessons give numerous examples of how teachers can approach the learning process to fully engage students. Active Lessons for Active Brains is a valuable resource for teachers in any content area and at any grade level." -- David Chadwell, Coordinator, Single-Gender Initiatives, Office of Public School Choice and Innovation

"Active Lessons for Active Brains is a great resource for those new to teaching who may need some guidance, as well as those seasoned veterans looking for fresh lessons to enhance what they already do. Most teachers understand that there are multiple modalities that children use in order to learn and the best educators are masters at using all of them in the classroom. These lessons will help students develop into active learners and move from a teacher-directed classroom to one of student engagement, inquiry and critical thinking."

-- Jay Greytok, Head of Middle School
