About this item

Nash, a consultant and former teacher and teacher trainer, argues that students need to shift from being passive observers to active participants in their own learning. He contends that teachers do more work than students, and that students need to do more of the talking and asking questions. He describes how education has changed, especially in terms of technology, and how teachers need to think of themselves as facilitators by letting students do the explaining, paraphrasing, clarifying, analyzing, inferring, and evaluating. He discusses the relationship between exercise and the learning process and strategies that combine movement and exercise with content; the need to slow down so students can reflect and process information; the need to teach students how to see the perspectives of others and empathize; the role of competition and collaboration in learning; how to frontload and facilitate; and how to shift the workload to students. This edition has new chapters on the value of empathy and the use of feedback vs. praise, additional material on maximizing the use of classroom time and supporting speakers and listeners, more examples at the elementary and secondary levels, and new teaching strategies that align with the Common Core State Standards, as well as new research on exercise, learning, and brain development.
