Synopsis

Learning With the Body in Mind The Scientific Basis for Energizers, Movement, Play, Games, and Physical Education by Eric P. Jensen

Capitalize on the high energy that is natural to young learners! Research suggests that movement activities are an integral part of the learning process. From role plays to relays, learning is better activated when the body gets involved. Whether you're a primary school teacher or a secondary maths teacher, you'll discover how to use movement to increase intrinsic motivation, improve attitudes, strengthen memory, and boost achievement in your classroom. This highly readable book offers a valuable compendium of practical strategies backed by clinical and classroom research for engaging students at all levels.
