Boredom Busters: Transform Worksheets, Lectures, and Grading into Engaging, Meaningful Learning Experiences
If you ever have to stifle a yawn while teaching the same old thing in the same old ways, just imagine how your students feel. If you’re bored, they are too!
No matter how great a teacher you are, there will be days when you are short on time, resources, energy, or ideas. When your lesson plan simply says, “See Page 47” (Yawn!), you know it’s time to shake things up with Boredom Busters!
Educator Katie Powell packs a wealth of lesson twists, games, and activities into Boredom Busters. The Worksheet Busters, Lecture Busters, and Homework Busters she shares work for all grade levels to create engaging, memorable, meaningful learning experiences for your students.
Imagine your students’ response when you tell them to fold their worksheet into a paper airplane, answer questions on colorful balls, or unfurl a giant board game across the floor.
Your students will be too. And they’ll want to come back for more!
