When people are kept from moving-whether they're sitting through a presentation or stuck behind a desk-they become restless and their attention waivers. Yet most training ignores the innate human desire for motion, resulting in participants learning less. Based on the latest neuroscience research, Training in Motion explains how movement enhances learning and introduces a unique and highly effective way to energize an audience and increase retention through simple body-focused techniques. The book shows readers how to: Tie lessons to movement to reinforce concepts * Manage learners' physical and emotional states to increase engagement and bolster memory * Use posture, physical gestures, and other movements to command interest * Employ quick physical breaks to efficiently refocus students * Turn lackluster sessions into high-achieving learning environments Practical, accessible, and packed with activities, this one-of-a-kind book helps readers add a kinesthetic component to their training so that participants stay motivated, and apply what they've learned long after they've left the classroom.

It provides theoretical and practical guidance on teaching creative dance, particularly in educational settings.

Their theories are combined with the authors’ insights from thirty years of dance teaching experience to: * validate dance as art education, adaptable to all ages and abilities * explain a conceptual framework for teaching dance in common language * highlight the kinesthetic sense as a guide for creating dance forms * provide methods of linking movement across the curriculum * address cultural material through creative dance * outline teaching progressions that develop student skill and understanding * guide readers into building and presenting lessons of their own * provide models for assessing student learning * relate creative dance instruction to achievement standards in dance and other disciplines * offer over 25 well-tested lesson plans and 40 adaptations that extend the lesson material.

This book introduces a variety of inclusive strategies for teaching language and literacy in kindergarten through 2nd grade. Readers are invited into classrooms where racially, culturally, and linguistically diverse children’s experiences, unique strengths, and expertise are supported and valued. Chapters focus on oral language, reading, and writing development and include diverse possibilities for culturally relevant and inclusive teaching. Featured teaching strategies foster academic success, cultural competence, and critical consciousness—leading students to read their worlds and question educational and societal inequities. Early childhood teachers will find this book invaluable as they consider effective ways to teach diverse children. The hands-on examples and strategies portrayed will help educators expand their thinking and repertoires regarding what is possible—and needed—in the language and literacy education curriculum. Unique in its focus on equitable, fully inclusive, and culturally relevant language and literacy teaching, this important book will help K–2 teachers (re)think and (re)conceptualize their own practices. “Offers us a great opportunity to explore pedagogical strategies that are diverse and inclusive.” —From the Foreword by Gloria Ladson-Billings, University of Wisconsin–Madison “Readers will discover a treasure of teacher and student collaborative experiences to engage diverse learners.” —Yetta and Ken Goodman, University of Arizona “The authors offer rich vignettes and pragmatic guidance for learning about, responding to, and respectfully building community among children. We readers are in their debt.” —Anne Haas Dyson, University of Illinois “A beautifully written book filled with powerful examples. . . . I heartily recommend it for all teachers lucky enough to work on a daily basis with our brilliant early elementary students.” —Ernest Morrell, Teachers College, Columbia University
