“Change up” that lecture

If you have seen me present on differentiation, you know that I am forever talking about the need to “change the learning state”- especially during a lecture or whole-class discussion. This article from Joan Middendorf and Alan Kalish is written to give teachers many options for doing just that. These 20+ techniques will work in many different grade levels but will be particularly useful in secondary education classrooms. These ideas will not only make your lectures more interesting and memorable, but available to a wider range of students-including those who need to move to learn, those who need to talk to learn, and those who need to teach the content before they really understand it.
