"Marcia brings the same enthusiasmnbsp;she has for working with adults to writing for adults. This is a book all trainers could benefit from, study, and keep accessible in their tool chest." Stephanie Hirsh, Deputy Executive Director National Staff Development Council Actively engage teachers, rekindle their passion for teaching, and take advantage of the ways the brain learns best! Research and experience prove that students learn better when teachers use brain-based strategies. The same is true with adult learners. However, the very strategies that are recommended for teachers to use in instructing students are seldom reflected in staff development workshops. "Sit and Get" Wont Grow Dendrites draws on the latest research in brain-based learning, differentiated instruction, multiple intelligences, and adult learning to provide strategies that not only motivate adult learners but also increase understanding and long-term retention. Author Marcia Tate defines each strategy, explains its theoretical framework in easy-to-understand language, provides multiple professional learning activities that staff developers can incorporate immediately, and includes a guided reflection and application section. Designed for easy implementation, this practical handbook includes: An overview of adult learning theory More than 150 professional learning activities Several sample professional learning designs Opportunities to reflect on and apply the presented strategies Supported by both learning-style theory and brain research, Tates strategies enable all staff development professionals to plan and deliver powerful, memorable presentations that improve teaching practices and increase academic achievement. This indispensable staff development resource is suitable for anyone who teaches adults, including staff developers, trainers, principals, teacher leaders, and educational consultants.
