The Brain Game: What to Think in Today’s Schools
About This Course
Current students will live in a world quite different from the one today. Knowledge of content will not be enough for them to ﬁnd success in life. Thinking, problem-solving, and communication are required skills for students to survive and thrive in changing times.
How will this kind of preparation and instruction change the look of teaching and learning in our classrooms?
This session takes a fresh look at Bloom’s Taxonomy and the differences between inductive and deductive teaching approaches.
All of this will be accomplished within the framework of nine powerful instructional strategies that have maximum impact on student thinking and success. Real-life examples and humor are used to illustrate the power of these strategies.
