Do you have students who are always off task? Or students who just aren't getting it because it is not fun, and they are obviously bored?
Well, thanks to Whole Brain Teaching Strategies and techniques my classroom environment has dramatically changed. My students are engaged in purposeful talk, applying skills and completing purposeful and meaningful products.
The Whole Brain teaching lesson that I am currently using is the Genius Ladder. My students are writing paragraphs everyday, and not just simple paragraphs but complex paragraphs including compound sentences, descriptive words and transitions just to name a few. It is so exciting to not only see my Regular Ed students achieving, but also my Special Needs students.
Here is a colleague of mine demonstrating the Genius Ladder in her classroom with her 3rd graders. She is the one who inspired me to begin! Thanks Lisa!!
