Experiential learning is an approach that requires students to directly engage in learning experiences. Being active participants in learning helps students derive a deeper level of meaning from the lesson and promotes critical thinking skills.

100 Experiential Learning Activities is a helpful resource for teachers who want to engage their students in experiential learning. The 100 active learning strategies detailed in the book are clearly explained, easy to implement, classroom-tested, and proven effective at engaging students. Creative and fun, these hands-on activities encourage students to think about and reflection upon complex content knowledge in different subject areas.

The easy-to-use materials provided in 100 Experiential Learning Activities make it easy for teachers to deliver lessons that link an investigation of history, economics, literature, music, and visual arts to McREL, NCTE, NCSS and Common Core State Standards (CCSS). Teachers will find activities on a wide range of topics and themes, including social issues such as social justice, culture, language, and diversity. Such lessons contribute to character education and can be used as part of a social and emotional learning (SEL) curriculum.

The book explains how teachers can promote the transfer of learning across disciplines through assignments that require students to

  • 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.

An excellent tool that will help middle and high school teachers bring lessons to life in a way that makes learning richer, deeper, and more meaningful.
