This unique resource is a deep dive into Activators, a core teaching practice that incorporates individual think time with purposeful social interaction to increase emotional, cognitive, and behavioral engagement in learning.

Featuring concrete, hands-on activities that can be completed efficiently at the start of a unit, lesson, or topic, Activators help to increase engagement in learning, support a well-paced lesson, generate connections to prior knowledge, provide students with opportunities to practice skills and deepen understandings, and support formative assessment. Although Activators have different formats, they all share two key components: individual think time and purposeful social interaction, which support students to develop quality responses to content and ideas while engaging with peers.Authors Nicole Frazier and Donna Mehle offer detailed facilitation tips for more than 20 Activators, providing a clear understanding of what they are and how they work in specific settings.

Frazier and Mehle created Activators with careful attention to the latest research on the most effective ways to foster engagement among adolescent learners. They were motivated to write Activators to share this powerful core practice more widely. They note, In our 25+ combined years of teaching experience as well as our work as educational consultants who support middle and secondary teachers around the country, weve witnessed up close the ways in which these Activator formats ignite students attention and interest, maximize participation and drive well-paced lessons that deepen learning in meaningful ways.Content area examples for English-Language Arts, Math, Science, Social Studies, and World Languages accompany each Activator.

The ELA and Math content examples are aligned to Common Core Content Standards for grades 6-12. Activators is an essential resource for educators who are committed to harnessing the power of engagement in the service of student learning.
