Whole Brain Teaching

Whole Brain TeachingMiss Kristen Bagnola (fourth grade teacher) and Mr. Justin Boggs (third grade teacher) at Knapp have incorporated a new researched based learning call “Whole Brain Teaching” in their classrooms.  This is a highly interactive form of instruction that delivers information to students in short “chunks”.  Kids use hand gestures to learn information with their teacher.  Then the students teach each other  using hand gestures. While students teach each other, the teacher walks around the room to discover who understands the lesson and who needs more instructions.  Mostly this is used to remember vocabulary words,  key steps in writing or solving math problems. If you would like to see this in action, please go to Knapp’s web page or Facebook page to watch the videos.  It is pretty cool and the students enjoy learning this way.
