Product Description

For staff developers, administrators, trainers, teacher leaders, educational consultants, and others who teach adults, Tate, an educational consultant, identifies 20 brain-based learning strategies meant to engage adult learners and boost long-term retention. She provides an overview of the ways adult learners differ from younger learners, a theoretical framework for why the strategies work, 150 professional learning activities during which the strategies can be used, questions for reflection and application, and sample lesson plans. The strategies involve brainstorming and discussion; drawing and artwork; field trips; games; graphic organizers, semantic maps, and word webs; humor and celebration; manipulatives and models; metaphors, analogies, and similes; mnemonic devices; movement; music, rhythm, rhyme, and rap; project and problem-based instruction; reciprocal teaching, cooperative learning, and peer coaching; role plays, drama, pantomimes, and charades; storytelling; technology; visualization and guided imagery; visuals; work study, action research, and professional learning communities; and writing and reflection. This edition incorporates new findings on learning styles, brain research, and adult learning theory. Annotation ©2012 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
