In The Press

"Active Lessons for Active Brains is a great resource for those new to teaching who may need some guidance, as well as those seasoned veterans looking for fresh lessons to enhance what they already do. Most teachers understand that there are multiple modalities that children use in order to learn and the best educators are masters at using all of them in the classroom. These lessons will help students develop into active learners and move from a teacher-directed classroom to one of student engagement, inquiry and critical thinking."
