Activate! Summary


Activate!: Deeper Learning through Movement, Talk, and Flexible Classrooms by Katherine Mills Hernandez

Discover what happens when your students step out of their daily routines and activate their engagement. Author Katherine Mills Hernandez argues that movement, talk, and the physical environment of the classroom all contribute and influence students' learning. The ideas in Activate! will help you create a classroom optimized for deeper engagement and lasting learning.

No matter what subject you teach, Katherine invites you to shift your attention from what you are doing in the classroom, to what your students are doing as the catalyst for learning. She provides insights into instruction through real classroom lessons as she gives you the tools to better assess your students' engagement and energy levels. The book describes practical ways to incorporate movement into the classroom routine, based on research on how an active brain generates true learning.

Katherine invites you into her own classroom by sharing vignettes from lessons and activities, opening up the pages of her own learning journal, sharing pictures from her classroom, and examples of classroom charts. She also provides a comprehensive bibliography on the research behind the science of movement and talk and how they affect learning.

Activate! Reviews


"This book promotes student involvement and engagement through activities which involve movement and physical interactions with the environment within and outside the classroom, and provides a collection of ideas teachers can use to link classroom lessons to student energy levels and activities. The author's own classroom serves as an example as she shares her lessons, her learning journal, and her classroom's activities and their results. The result is highly recommended reading for any educator looking to promote a deeper level of student engagement." -Midwest Book Review, The Education Shelf
