Reading and Language Arts Worksheets Don't Grow Dendrites: 20 Literacy Strategies That Engage the Brain
According to experts in the field, reading and language arts skills are best acquired when students are actively engaged in their own learning. Reading and Language Arts Worksheets Don't Grow Dendrites focuses on brain-based literacy strategies for Grades K - 12, structured around the International Reading Association and National Council of Teachers of English Standards. It contains over 300 activities from hundreds of teachers as well as the author's own classroom models.
This practical resource is dedicated to literacy strategies that apply to the way students learn to read and read to learn. These hands-on techniques will help you teach reading in relevant, motivating, and engaging ways. The activities cover essential areas of literacy instruction including: phonemic awareness; phonics and vocabulary instruction; text comprehension; reading authentically, widely, and strategically, writing strategically; creating, critiquing, and discussing texts; conducting research; using technological resources, and more.
Unless students are involved and actively engaged in learning, true learning rarely occurs. Invite your students to use their higher-level thinking skills, increase their comprehension, and make the learning their own.
