Teacher as Activator of Learning

Gayle H. Gregory,

Teacher as Activator of Learning
 
 

Flip the Switch! How to Get Students Into Learning Mode Now.

In his well-known meta-analysis, John Hattie suggests that facilitating learning is not as effective or powerful as activating learning.  In this book Gayle Gregory shows you how to facilitate better and deeper learning. Packed with practical strategies that teachers can use every day to increase student achievement, you will also discover what educational neuroscience says about nurturing a "growth mindset" and creating classrooms that support and encourage students to take risks and "fail forward."  Learn how to

  • Foster student dialogue and thinking
  • Orchestrate productive, reflective flexible student groups 
  • Develop respectful learning relationships between and among students and teachers

Teacher competencies and clarity related to student goals and success criteria, with quality feedback, are essential for student success.  This resource will enrich learning environments for students and increase the chance of success for all.

"In going from ‘teachers as fount of knowledge’ to ′teacher as facilitator’ the field has overcorrected. Gayle Gregory corrects all that with a comprehensive and deep portrayal of the need for ’teachers to be activators’ of learning in partnership with students. Based on equal measure of research and practice Gregory gives is a compelling set of ideas and tools to maximize student learning and engagement. Read it and hit the ground running!"
Michael Fullan, Professor Emeritus, OISE/University of Toronto
