U-Turn Teaching is founded on Rich Allen's 'Green Light' education strategies, in which every activity is designed to proactively support learning. This book builds on what researchers have discovered about how the adolescent brain learns best and shows how those discoveries directly relate to effective classroom teaching. It will help to engage all students, even unmotivated ones, and help them make a U-turn by applying these four principles of brain-based learning: - build and maintain trust - create a collaborative community - take a TEAMing approach - prime the positive environment. U-Turn Teaching demonstrates how to realistically accomplish these four principles in the classroom. When educators are able to embed positive, efficient and effective patterns of learning in the middle years, students are far more likely to succeed in high school and beyond.
