Whole Brain Teaching
What is it?
Power Teaching (also called Whole Brain Teaching) is a method of delivering content to students in a way that maximizes student engagement. It combines 3 learning styles (auditory, visual, kinesthetic) to deliver content to students in a more engaging way than sitting through a lecture.
- This method hits several learning styles: auditory, visual, kinesthetic.
- Increased student engagement
- From personal experience, I noticed students were able to recall content throughout the whole year, not just for the test.
- Think of how you can break down your content into snippets and add hand motions to accompany.
- Using "Teach-Okay" deliver the snippets to students.
- Having trouble coming up with hand motions? Have students come up with them. This helps give them ownership of what they are learning.
- It will feel awkward and silly at first, but when you see students start recalling material at a quicker rate, it will be worth it.
