It’s one thing for a teacher to deliver the curriculum; it’s another to do it in a way that makes students smile and have fun while learning.

40 Active Learning Strategies for the Inclusive Classroom:  Grades K-5, by Linda S. Green and Danielle Casale-Giannola, does just that.  This must-have resource for elementary school teachers provides creative teaching strategies for delivering high quality differentiated instruction in inclusive classrooms.

The pages of this valuable guide are filled with vignettes, step-by-step directions, activities and reflections that make up more than 40 ready-to-use lesson plans.  Each of these teaching strategies takes into account brain-based research and supports a variety of students’ needs and strengths.  These lessons will engage students with fun learning experiences as they use their brains, study ideas, solve problems, and apply what they learn. 

The authors identify key characteristics of active, brain-compatible classrooms, which are components of the strategies included in the book. These include:

  • Frequent student responses
  • Physical movement paired with learning
  • Visual cues
  • Student choice
  • Students teaching students

Examples of ready-to-use lessons described in the book are

  • Ball toss
  • Chain reaction
  • Classroom Box Bingo
  • Think, pair, share
  • Walking in their shoes

Students learn best when teachers utilize a range of strategies to ensure lessons meet the needs of diverse students with different learning styles.  The strategies presented in this book will make learning fun and natural for both special education and general education students in the general education classroom.
