How can teachers help students develop the literacy skills that are necessary for learning and retaining information in any subject? Traditional memory tricks, mnemonic devices, graphic organizers, and role playing do little to turn bored or reluctant students into enthusiastic learners. In A Teacher's Guide to Multisensory Learning:ÿImproving Literacy by Engaging the Senses, Lawrence Baines shows teachers how to engage students through hands-on, visual, auditory, and olfactory stimuli and link the activities to relevant academic objectives. Throughout the book, you'll find real classroom examples of how teachers use multisensory learning techniques to help students interact with material more intensely and retain what they learn for longer periods of time. Baines provides a wide variety of engaging lesson plans to keep students motivated, such as *Paint-Write--encourages students to use spontaneous painting to interpret their thoughts *Soundtrack of Your Life--allows students to use contemporary music to learn about narrative writing *Candy Freak--helps students expand their descriptive vocabularies (as they eat their favorite treats!) *Red Carpet Conversations--empowers students to create dialogue and act out scenarios about their favorite celebrities Seventeen additional lessons plans are complemented with practical assessments and strategies for engaging students' sense of play. For teachers who are ready to energize their classrooms, this book is an invaluable resource for expanding students' capacity to learn and helping them cultivate essential skills that will last a lifetime.
