9781483381855: Teacher as Activator of Learning

Flip The Switch! How to Get Students Into Learning Mode Now.
What is it that separates classrooms that have an atmosphere of stagnation and passivity from ones that are electric with motivation and engagement? 

In this book, education expert Gayle Gregory offers the conditions necessary to foster an environment of active, visible learning in a brain-compatible climate. In its pages you’ll find:

  • What teachers should do to reach targeted standards using theories such as Growth Mindsets and Panksepp’s SEEKING system
  • What an "instructionally intelligent" teacher has in her repertoire that impacts student success
  • Strategies that activate student thinking and target learning intentions through differentiation and the use of collaboration, formative assessment, and feedback

Review:

"In going from "teacher as fount of knowledge" to "teacher as facilitator" the field has over-corrected. Gayle Gregory corrects that with a comprehensive and deep portrayal of the need for teachers to be activators of learning in partnership with students. Based on equal measures of research and practice, Gregory gives us a compelling set of ideas and tools to maximize student learning and engagement. Read it and hit the ground running!"--Michael Fullan, Professor Emeritus (11/07/2015)

Gayle Gregory has taken her extensive knowledge of differentiation and classroom instruction to new heights in her latest book, Teacher As Activator of Learning. Supported by the recent extensive, compelling research of John Hattie, Bob Marzano, and several other contemporary educational researchers, she has crafted a practical, useful volume filled with research-based instructional strategies that classroom teachers and school leaders can use immediately to inform their practice. This book is a must-have for any school professional library. --Ainsley Rose (12/22/2015)
