New and Notable from ESR
ESR announces the publication of Activators: Classroom Strategies for Engaging Middle and High School Students, a deep dive into a core teaching practice that incorporates individual think time with purposeful social interaction to increase emotional, cognitive, and behavioral engagement in learning. Featuring concrete, hands-on activities that can be integrated at various points during a lesson, Activators help to increase engagement in learning by supporting a well-paced lesson, generating connections to prior knowledge, supporting formative assessment, and providing students with opportunities to practice skills and deepen understanding.
Although Activators have different formats, they all share two key components: individual think time and purposeful social interaction, which support students to develop quality responses to content and ideas while engaging with peers. Authors Nicole Frazier and Donna Mehle offer detailed facilitation tips for more than 20 Activators, providing a clear understanding of what they are and how they work to increase teacher effectiveness and student learning in specific settings. Content area examples for English-language arts, math, science, social studies, and world languages accompany each Activator. The ELA and math content examples are aligned to Common Core Content Standards for grades 6-12.
Activators is an essential resource for educators who are committed to harnessing the power of engagement in the service of student learning.Click here to learn more, view a sample chapter, and order your copy today.
