  • Five principles of high-five teaching that ensure a welcoming, active, and student-centered learning environment
  • Detailed sample lesson plans in math, science, reading, writing, and social studies
  • Case studies, technology connections, and ways to create true learning communities
  • An appendix of sample forms, games, and other essential classroom resources

Designed specifically to engage today′s students, this guide offers tools and strategies to inspire best practices in every classroom.
