In today's classrooms, the teacher/student divide isn't just generational - it is digital. Exposure to digital technology from birth hard-wires the human brain to learn differently. For 21st Century learners, traditional 'chalk and talk' instruction belongs to a bygone era. Instead, these students need interactive teaching strategies. This book offers 26 proven, interactive strategies to help teachers improve academic results, student engagement and classroom behavior. Importantly, while replicating many features of the digital environment, none of the strategies rely on technology. They require little or no extra budget and reduce wasted effort on the part of the teacher by actively involving students in the learning process. Ignite student learning and enhance your instruction! * Addresses the need for teachers to adjust their teaching strategies to meet the needs of 21st Century learners. * Offers 26 (A-Z) High-Impact Strategies, explaining why they are important to digital natives; how they support classroom management; and specific steps, tips and techniques for implementing them. * Features a series of High-Impact Lessons from real teachers in real classrooms with real students, covering all 26 strategies across the grade levels and content areas. * Includes 10 stories that can be used in the classroom as analogies, metaphors, or examples. What Educators are Saying "Every educator needs to read this book. It successfully provides teachers with a recipe that can be used in any classroom, any content, [and] any grade-level to teach people. Teaching is an art, and the author masterfully unlocks the secrets of a successful teacher." - Cheryl K. Dick, elementary school teacher, Nixa R-II School District, Nixa, MO "The connection of each strategy [in High Impact Teaching Strategies] to the world children live in today enabled me to better understand why we need to change the way we think about the instruction we deliver. These high impact-teaching strategies are both useful and relevant to the challenges educators and students face each day." - Tracy S. Hendrix, academic coach, Carnesville Elementary School, Carnesville, GA
