Rocket Up Your Class! : 101 High Impact Activities to Start, End and Break Up Lessons Paperback
by Dave Keeling
Edited by Ian Gilbert
Part of the The Independent Thinking Series series
"The Independent Thinking Series" brings together some of the most innovative practitioners working in education today under the guidance of Ian Gilbert, founder of Independent Thinking Ltd.Are you looking for a creative opening, energising middle or big finish to a lesson?
Then just pick out a relevant game, exercise or idea from this wonderful book and watch the fireworks go.Failing that, just leave the room as you found it and head for your local hostelry where Dawn will be waiting with a patient ear, a packet of crisps and your usual.All the ideas contained within this book have come together over ten years of experience, working with thousands of students in hundreds of schools.Some are of Dave's own devising, some have been donated and the rest have been simply nicked under the user-friendly title of knowledge sharing, but all have been deployed with one vision in mind which is to shamelessly entertain whilst at the same time engaging young people in the creative arena in order to prove, as Socrates the Greek philosopher once stated, 'Life and learning should be a festival of the mind'.
