As an educator, do you ever feel like you are competing with video games and social media and that kids would rather be anywhere else but the classroom? This book is a real eye opener. It explains the importance of creating active learning experiences and a more student-centered culture. When students expend more energy during learning experiences and talk more than their teachers, it can save time and energy for us. In this book, the author gives very specific examples of learning activities that are engaging and will motivate students to take ownership and be more accountable to their learning.
