Teaching in the Fast Lane: How to Create Active Learning Exp
Teaching in the Fast Lane: How to Create Active Learning Experiences
by Suzy Pepper Rollins
Teaching in the Fast Lane offers teachers a way to increase student engagement: an active classroom. The active classroom is about creating learning experiences differently, so that students engage in exploration of the content and take on a good share of the responsibility for their own learning. It’s about students reaching explicit targets in different ways, which can result in increased student effort and a higher quality of work.
Author Suzy Pepper Rollins details how to design, manage and maintain an active classroom that balances autonomy and structure. She offers student-centred, practical strategies on sorting, station teaching and cooperative learning that will help teachers build on students’ intellectual curiosity, self-efficacy and sense of purpose.
Using the strategies in this book, teachers can strategically “let go” in ways that enable students to reach their learning targets, achieve more, be motivated to work, learn to collaborate and experience a real sense of accomplishment.
