about

Learning in secondary school classrooms involves much more than students reciting the "right" answers on high-stakes tests. This activity-packed book encourages educators to move beyond traditional models of teaching and learning and provides them with the tools for getting started.
100 Experiential Learning Activities for Social Studies, Literature, and the Arts, Grades 5–12 focuses on using active learning to engage students in critical thinking and reflection about complex content knowledge in the humanities and the arts. The 100 activities address significant social issues, including social justice, culture, language, and diversity. Teachers can emphasize comprehension, encourage creative thinking, and promote transfer across disciplines to help students:
• Explore primary sources to uncover practical and relevant information
• Construct careful arguments to integrate new learning with prior knowledge
• Question deeply held assumptions to arrive at authentic understandings
• Approach new ideas with confidence
Take your students through meaningful learning experiences and make knowledge come alive!
