……………………………………………………………………..

Today I am full of  gratitude for the high impact that cooperative and active learning have for students. I am also grateful for my cyber colleague, Rob Plevin, and my dear friend Merrill Harmin, who encourage all students to be more active in their own learning processes and in overcoming their own learning difficulties.  – Doc Meek, Sherwood Park, Alberta, CANADA, Fri, Aug 16, 2013

Dear Doc,

Our summer sale bonanza is coming to an end very soon.

We only have one more product to run at discount plus another ‘secret’ product which I may announce very soon (you don’t want to miss that one if we do decide to run it).

For now, the product we have at HALF OFF is…

Cooperative and Active Learning in Lessons

…and it’s on sale for just THREE MORE DAYS – until Monday 19th August.

This is actually one of my favourite resources – I loved putting this together because it contains a lot of the activities that my students enjoyed when I used to teach. In fact, the activities are so good, I now use them in our live courses and workshops.

The activities are suitable for practically any age group and any subject – with minimal adaptation – and you’ll find them PERFECT if you’re looking for ways to…

  • Get students working together cooperatively (Hint: this is one of the EASIEST ways to reduce behaviour problems and improve participation – even bored, switched off students get a huge kick from working like this).
  • Put more ACTIVITY in your lessons – you’ve no-doubt heard that a large proportion of ‘troublesome’ students tend to be kinesthetic learners. If you try and teach these students using didactic, lecture-style methods they will HATE it! The way to make subjects accessible and appealing to these students is to include some activity in the learning tasks – get them on their feet and ‘doing’ stuff. These activities will enable you to make any subject more ‘hands-on’.
  • Make subject content STICK – It’s obvious, when students are truly engaged in the learning process there is much more chance that the information you give them will actually be remembered. The activities in this resource will give you countless ways to INVOLVE all your students in fun, interactive ways they will LOVE.

The pack includes:

  • Cooperative and active learning templates and activities
  • Fun grouping tips
  • Instructions for managing super-enjoyable and successful group work sessions
  • Active teaching strategies
  • Editable print-ready resource templates
  • Novel ideas for getting ALL your students involved
  • And much much more…

Best wishes,

Rob Plevin

“Reading for fun.” ~ Doc Meek

The Brethren

Thursday, March 3, 2011. Today I am grateful for reading simply for leisure. I am reading John Grisham’s The Brethren and enjoying this legal thriller with its many twists and turns.

In all my many hours of serious studying, research, etc., I need to remember that success consists in not only working hard, it also includes the wisdom to take mental breaks to keep the brain sharp and body healthy.

Thank you, John Grisham, for another fun read!

Monday, February 21, 2011. Today I am grateful for those who know the terribleness of pain and the promise of pain. Such a one is Deanna Edwards (and also one we reported in a previous article, Corry Roach). ~ Doc Meek

Deanna Edwards’ husband, a writer, said:

“We don’t know what we know until we write it down. We think in pictures and we need to translate those pictures into verbal symbols. Writing is learning!” – Grieving: The Pain and the Promise, page 178.

Creative effort can awaken and challenge the sleeping giant within us.

Thank you, Deanna Edwards, for helping to awaken the sleeping giant within each of us!
