U-Turn Teaching PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

U-Turn Teaching free pdf U-Turn Teaching is founded on Rich Allen's 'Green Light' education strategies, in which every activity is designed to proactively support learning. This book builds on what researchers have discovered about how the adolescent brain learns best and shows how those discoveries directly relate to effective classroom teaching. It will help to engage all students, even unmotivated ones, and help them make a U-turn by applying these four principles of brain-based learning: - build and maintain trust - create a collaborative community - take a TEAMing approach - prime the positive environment. U-Turn Teaching demonstrates how to realistically accomplish these four principles in the classroom. When educators are able to embed positive, efficient and effective patterns of learning in the middle years, students are far more likely to succeed in high school and beyond.

She has taken an increased role in professional development: facilitating workshops for parents, mentoring beginning teachers, leading professional study groups, as well as running in-service trainings at various school districts, universities and state conferences. Since 2009, she has led a continuing education course entitled, "The Winning Combination: Linking Brain Research with Practical Classroom Strategies". Jenn earned her B.S. and M.

Despite having taught for nearly two decades, she continues to delight in the challenge of showing every student that they can succeed. Along with her husband Scott and their canine companion Maggie, Jenn lives in the small, rural town of Greenville, Pennsylvania. Together, they enjoy cooking and spending time in the great outdoors hiking, four-wheeling, and horseback riding. She may be reached at jenncurrie@verizon.net.
