7 Learning logs and journals are used throughout the units to help students think about what they have learned. These writings help students organize their learning, review concepts, and identify gaps in understanding.

8 Our brains are social and we have an innate need to relate to others. Cooperative learning activities and team settings give students opportunities to work and learn together in a structured setting. Emphasis is taken off competition and placed on cooperation. This allows students to learn from one another, connect to what they know, and build neural networks.

9 There’s no better way to wake up the brain than to engage students in high interest, hands-on, small group activities. Students are motivated by challenge and that motivation pushes the brain to search for connections needed to problem-solve. In the process of working with others to analyze, predict, and problem-solve, new connections are built. Learning makes sense, confidence grows, and students are more likely to be excited about learning.

10 “Using the physical learning system to learn new information, understand difficult concepts, and develop new skills is as important as demonstrating what you learn through imitation or creative expression.” (Given, 2002) In this example, movement is used to help students understand programming language.
11 Evaluation is on-going and includes a variety of evaluation tools such as checklists, rubrics, quizzes, self-evaluation, learning log entries, observation, and conferencing. This type of evaluation system provides students with useful feedback that guides their learning and increases motivation.

12 Brainstorming the answers to questions before the activity helps students link the background knowledge of others to their own background knowledge. The resulting connections in the brain deepen understanding and increase confidence.
