Many years ago a book was written titled, All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten. When it comes to teaching and learning, this title is so accurate. In this edWebinar, experience at least ten of the 20 strategies that all teachers should use to deliver instruction, regardless of the grade level or content area of the student. These brain-compatible strategies are used most often in kindergarten but should be used by all teachers to maximize memory and minimize forgetting. When teachers provide visuals and storytelling and students have opportunities to draw, sing, and move, content is remembered. PreK-12 teachers, teacher leaders, curriculum specialists, teacher assistants, and administrators will benefit from this webinar. Learn the names of the 20 strategies and the research behind why these strategies work for PreK through 12th grade and college students, as well as adults. This edWebinar has been called professionally and personally enlightening and so much fun!
