  Active Learning1.What Is Active Learning?  Active learning is anything that students do in the classroom to learn other than just listening to a lecture  Active learning involves students in doing things and thinking about what they are doing  Active learning happens when students are given the opportunity to take a more interactive relationship with the subject matter of a course, encouraging them to generate rather than simply to receive knowledge. In an active learning environment, teachers facilitate rather than dictate the students’ learning. 2.Why Active Learning? Research  shows that…  students preer AL over lecture alone  students master content at levels comparable to lecturing  students master thinking and writing skills at levels higher than lecturing  student learning styles are better served by active learning vs. lecturing  Research has shown that active learning is an eceptionally effective teaching techni!ue.Regardless of the subject matter, when active learning is compared to traditional teaching methods such as lecture#, students learn more material, retain the information longer, and enjoy the class more. Active learning allows students to learn in the classroom with the help of the instructor and other students, rather than on their own. !. ow #o Incorporate Active Learning Into $our %lassroom $mploying active learning techni!ues in the classroom can pose difficulties to teachers and students not accustomed to this mode of instruction. %he teacher surrenders some of the control of the class as s&he becomes a facilitator, and the students take increasedresponsibility for not only what but also how they learn. Incorporating active learning in the classroom, then, re!uires students to act. %ry using the following techni!ues to offer your students the opportunity to participate actively in their learning.  #hink&pair&share is a simple activity you can use in any classroom format. 'ive students time to think about a topic, turn to their neighbor for a short discussion, and then share the results with the rest of the class.  'inute (apers provide students with the opportunity to synthesi(e their knowledge and to ask unanswered !uestions. 'ive students a few minutes at the end of class to answer the following !uestions in writing) *hat was the most important thing you learned today+ *hat important !uestion remains unanswered+ ariations of these !uestions, and the student !uestions and answers they generate, enhance your students’ learning process and provide you with feedback on students’ understanding of the subject material.  Writing activities of many kinds offer students the opportunity to think about andprocess information. -or eample, in addition to minute papers, you could pose a  !uestion and then give students time to reewrite their answers. ou could also give students time to freewrite about topics.    )rainstorming is another simple techni!ue that can involve the whole class in adiscussion.Introduce a topic or problem and then ask for student input, which yourecord on the board.  *ames related to the subject can easily be incorporated into the classroom to foster active learning and participation. 'ames can include matching, mysteries, group competitions,solving pu((les, pictionary, etc.    +ebates staged in class can be effective tools for encouraging students to think about several sides of an issue.  *roup work allows every participant the chance to speak, share personal views,and develop the skill of working with others. /ooperative group work re!uires all group members to work together to complete a given task. 0reak the class into groups of 123 students. 'ive each group articles to read, !uestions to answer and discuss, information to share, subjects to teach to other groups, etc.  %ase studies use real2life stories that describe what happened to a community, family,school, or individual to prompt students to integrate their classroom knowledge with their knowledge of real2world situations, actions, and conse!uences.
