Abstract:

Useful for any course! Stimulate thinking, discussion, and group interaction with these practical, ready-to-use activities! An essential tool for every instructor, this book is based on the premise that many of today's students learn best by interacting and by doing. To supplement the auditory learning students receive during lectures, Constance Staley offers instructors many dynamic class-tested activities designed to engage students in their own learning. Incorporating affective, behavioral, and cognitive goals, these exercises shift the teacher's role from soloist or center-stage performer to conductor, orchestrating and synthesizing a classroom experience where students actively participate and learn. - Back cover.
