Here’s an interesting spin on teaching! And no, I don’t mean the band.
- Active Learning
- Cooperative Learning
- Discovery Learning
“ACDC Leadership and Consulting was created by Jacob Clifford in 2007. We are dedicated to creating student-focused teaching resources that make learning exciting, powerful, and fun. We offer teachers, schools, and districts a variety of programs, activities, and workshops. […] we have what you need to get students out of their seats and into the curriculum.” http://www.acdcleadership.com/
One example of a student project using the ACDC program is having the students create a music video using course content as lyrics. I remember taking anatomy and physiology and wishing it could be converted into song lyrics…the terminology would be much easier to remember if I could sing through it!
Here’s another example of using movies/music to help student remember content that may be difficult to recall: (I shared it with my nursing class and they loved it!)
