Chapter 6 is about active learning.
What is active learning?
Well, when students are actively doing things in the classroom!
These are just a few of the cool things you could do in your classroom.
This chapter got me very excited for next year-I'm think of ways to have more active learning in my classroom!
There are still some things that I might do 'passively'-I LOVE doing lectures on the American Revolution-and the kids get pretty excited as well because of the fill-in-the-blank foldables (and because I'm bouncing around the room demonstrating (sometimes with their help) acting silly :).
I can also incorporate some 'active' strategies to make this unit even better! (You know, depending on time and testing...this year we didn't have a lot of time to cover it)
Even fitting in one or two active strategies can make a unit/day better!
