Practical strategies to take your students′ understanding from "So what?" to "Wow!"

With the amount of content that teachers have to teach, how can we ensure that students gain a deep and lasting understanding of what they have learned? Based on the most current research on cognition and the brain, this exciting book for Grades 4–12 provides teachers with a systematic, reflective approach to incorporating powerful learning and content processing techniques into everyday instruction.

Nationally recognized experts Eric Jensen and LeAnn Nickelsen outline the Deeper Learning Cycle (DELC), an instructional model that incorporates brain research, standards, and individual learning differences, to help educators teach for deeper understanding and critical thinking. This invaluable resource includes:

  • In-depth chapters explaining the seven stages of the DELC: planning with standards and curriculum, pre-assessing, building a positive learning culture, priming and activating prior knowledge, acquiring new knowledge, processing the learning, and evaluating student learning
  • A Deeper Learning lesson plan template to apply to daily instruction
  • 50 strategies to differentiate instruction based on learning levels and to help students process content in meaningful ways
  • Reflection questions to help teachers apply the material to their own practice

Deeper Learning is a powerful tool to promote and support student progress beyond the surface level of understanding in any subject area.
