Open up your Yes You Can File In this file you have the teacher powerpoint Student Powerpoint All of the handouts ********************************************************** For this workshop – please open you student powerpoint file. You will use this file to fill in the blanks – a way to keep students connected – allow for Opportunities to Respond…
Success for today will look, sound, and feel like… Experiencing and ________ about engaging cooperative learning structures; Understanding of ________ strategies to promote personal and share learning and responsibility; New ways to utilize ________ learning strategies to promote deep learning in content dense subject areas; Fun ________ and a new strategy to use tomorrow!
Welcome Goals Working Teams Exploring Research: Learning/ Meeting Styles and Needs Brain-Based Learning Cooperative Learning Strategies Research into Practice Strategies to engage Learners in Content-dense material Closing
Personal Connections to _ Styles of Learning; Exploring the __ Mind Brain Learning Principles; ___ Conditions of Learning; Learn how ________ structures can support the principles and conditions of learning. Deeper understanding of the ________ that support learning by attending to the emotional, physical needs, styles and preferences of learners.
Step 1 - Mix-move around room slowly, like cold water molecules (take at least 10 steps) Step 2 - Freeze - When the music stops – stop where you are and listen for the question Step 3 - Group by the # in the answer
Question: How many feet does a biped have? Starting with the person’s head that is closest to the ceiling -Introduce yourselves… Then… Share what is written on your strip of paper – what is your level of understanding (fist to 5) When the music starts move again…
Question: How many syllables does anatomy have? Starting with the person’s head that is closest to the ceiling -Introduce yourselves… Then… Share what is written on your strip of paper – what is your level of understanding (fist to 5) When the music starts move again…
This is your base team for the rest of this session. Collect your belongings and find a learning place for your team. Wait until all team members are present before you sit down.

Sensing people pay close attention to data provided by their senses -- immediate experience, literal facts, and close realities. Action Is What Drives Them Intuitive people need to find associations and connections among things and are interested in theories and imagined possibilities. Meaning Is What Drives Them Thinking people prefer logic and orderly, analytic, and objective thinking. Structure Is What Drives Them Feeling People prefer subjective thinking connected with human values and harmony. Caring Is What Drives Them Carl Jung

One minute write on what you need to do your best work. Round Robin Share (members restate what they heard for clarification) As a team identify at least one working condition for your base team. Use thumps up/Thumbs Sideways/ Thumbs down for agreement. Write working condition(s) on a table tent.

(Runner Get Placemat) Put placemat in the center of the group; Individually Review the 12 Mind/Brain Learning Principles Each member of your team select one principle (have each member select a different principle) On your placemat have each person write the principle at the top of his/her corner. Then take one minute and write down implications for teaching and instruction. Rotate the placemat to the right until your original writing comes back to you. Round Robin Share one Ah-Ha or idea for your principle (30 seconds each)

1 minute - think about a time when you were actively engaged in learning, which conditions of learning were present, and write down 3 words to describe your experience. 3 minutes (each) - Pair up with your shoulder partner, share the conditions of learning that were present and your 3 words: describe what they look, sound, and feel like in action. 1 Minute Quick Write -Identify one Ah- Ha for use in your class on. Record on your reflection log.
After 2 weeks we tend to remember…Nature of Involvement Reading Hearing Words Looking at Pictures Watching a Movie Looking at an Exhibit Watching a Demonstration Seeing it Done on Location Participating in a Discussion Giving a Talk Doing a Dramatic Presentation Stimulating the Real Experience Doing the Real Thing 10% of what we read 20% of what we hear 30% of what we see 50% of what we hear & see 70% of what we say 90% of what we say & do Verbal Receiving Passive Visual Receiving Receiving/ Participating Active Doing Edgar Dale, Audio-Visual Methods in Teaching (3 rd Ed.)

This section will take us briefly into an A&P Class; The class is just beginning a new unit. I am using a few slides from Holes Anatomy to model how you can use slides from your series to create note taking tools. We will use some of the same structures we just experienced with a content twist. Let’s Play!
________ – study of structure ________ – study of function _______ is always related to ______ 1-3
Albert Einstein’s weighed (2.71 lbs), significantly less then the human average. is about 2% of your total body weight but uses 20% of your body's energy Generates more electrical impulses in one day than by all the telephones in the world. Acts as a control center by receiving, interpreting, and directing sensory information throughout the body. Has over100 billion neurons, the same number of stars in our galaxy. In an adult weighs approximately 3 lbs. The left side has 186 million more neurons than the right. Retrieved from
