Review:

"The book shows teachers how to create a student-centered environment that transforms learners from passive attendees into active participants and classroom leaders. It combines the author's classroom experience with the latest brain-based research on movement, memory and learning and is packed with real-world strategies teachers will appreciate." -- James A. Cox, Editor-in-Chief * The Midwest Book Review, March 2012 * "Imagine high-performing classrooms filled with active learners eagerly communicating and collaborating along the information highway. From Seatwork to Feetwork delivers a road map to create the 21st century classroom. Filled with powerful and practical strategies, Nash zeros in on the challenges of creating a learning environment that ensures students will arrive at their destination." -- LouAnne Metzger, Principal "Every educator encounters an "Ed" in their career. The insights gained from his experience and growth are beneficial in supporting the development and growth of teachers. The one DOING the work is doing the learning. The teachers have learned plenty; now let the students learn more in the Active Classroom." -- Kimberly M. Cousins, Principal "Nash provides teachers a powerful tool for reflection balanced with practical ideas for meeting students where they are and actively engaging them in learning. The ideas skillfully presented get students out of their seats, onto their feet, and involved in their learning. This is a perfect addition to any modern educator's toolkit." -- Ashley Ellis, Coordinator of Licensed Staff Development "Once again, Ron Nash champions for today's student by making a strong case for educators to move past the status quo of the traditional classroom. This book provides teachers with practical strategies for building a classroom where there is active learning for all students." -- Kathy Mathison, Director of Staff Development
