Reviews

To engage a wide range of learners, from reluctant to eager, can be a daunting task, especially in subjects that some students may find difficult and challenging. Dennis Adams and Mary Hamm take a research-based approach at engaging students of all learning types to the areas of science, technology, engineering, and math. Focusing on teamwork in the classroom, Adams and Hamm have created a guide for a more active and participatory classroom, with sample math activities, online resources, engineering activity ideas and more to help create this more active, team-building classroom. Written in a teacher friendly style, ripe with analogies and examples, this book will show teachers how to emphasize teamwork so students of all learning types will become curious and find answers together in our ever-evolving world. -- Taylor Weinfurter, Youth Services Librarian Adams and Hamm write a cogent text including the latest theories on active learning, brain-based learning, multiple intelligences, learning styles and the most up-to-date technology for teachers. By ending each chapter with practical, innovative strategies for immediately putting these theories into practice, the authors provide teachers with opportunities to empower students to become active, responsible learners. Every teacher will find something in Engaging Eager and Reluctant Learners: STEM Learning in Action! to implement in his/her classroom to enhance student outcomes. -- Luann Okel Adams, Wisconsin Teacher
