Item description for Impact Techniques in the Classroom: 88 Activities to Engage Your Students by Danie Beaulieu...
One of your students is facing bullies and peer rejection. Another needs special help to keep up with the class. How can you help increase their resiliency and maintain their sense of self-worth? Overcome these and other conditions that detract from learning by using Impact Techniques to get your students' learning back on track.
Impact Techniques in the Classroom brings you 88 tools and activities to make your teaching more effective by developing your students' emotional intelligence, enhancing memory skills, and increasing cooperation and engagement. The activities use techniques that incorporate current knowledge about how the brain and memory function. By using verbal language, images, movements, and props (such as an extension cord or a $20 bill), these techniques target the student's implicit memory---the form of memory that decodes information through intuition and experience and is outside the student's conscious control.
Using an impact technique is like giving your teaching efforts a learning amplifier, which enables your students to integrate both intellectual and emotional knowledge more quickly, and with greater depth and intensity. Activities can be used in a group or with an individual student and focus on: * Self-Control---resisting urges, delaying the satisfaction of desires * Empathy---recognizing the feelings of another, understanding their feelings, and building better relationships with them * Self-Motivation---perseverance, enthusiasm for work
