About the Engage the Brain SeriesThis practical resource gives teachers the tools they need to plan lessons correlated to the way the brain learns best. Based on tested, research-based strategies presented in Worksheets Don't Grow Dendrites: 20 Instructional Strategies That Engage the Brain, this book offers a variety of language arts activities that incorporate games to help students make sense of and reinforce learning. These activities give students the opportunity to not only play but also construct and design a variety of games, greatly increasing brain connections to the content. These strategies allow students to master curriculum objectives while actively rehearse information in an engaging, non-threatening atmosphere, which makes a real difference in students' energy, motivation, and achievement.Engage the Brain: Games, Language Arts, Grades 6-8 contains games based on national academic standards for language arts, including reading, writing, language conventions, and listening and speaking. Some games are based on old favorites (such as Bingo, Scavenger Hunt, Relay Races, Go Fish, Concentration, Charades) and some are brand new, including:Context Clue CapersMultiple Meanings ManiaThe Root of the MatterSynonym Shades and GradesCouplet ChaosTone It UpPass, Write, and EditGenre JumbleSentence ShuffleFive Alive!
