Movement IS Learning
Wednesday, September 26, 2018
Aleta Margolis believes excellent instruction engages students intellectually, emotionally, and physically. When we shift classroom practices and invite students to move in class, we can create vibrant environments where students are more likely to be engaged, instruction and new ideas are internalized and new skills are built. When given the freedom and responsibility to explore, new ways of communicating, community building and problem solving can emerge, as students are asked to complete far more complex, demanding work (being fully engaged in body and mind) than just sitting and listening.
