  • The Kinesthetic Classroom: Teaching and Learning through Movement: Using movement, thoughtfulling and purposefully in all classrooms, is a brain-based approach to teaching and learning that helps teachers move from the traditional self-view of "teacher" to a new paradign of "faciliator of learning" and "designer of the learning environment". This concept not only supports the best instructional practices of brain-based teaching, differentiaition, and motivation, it also helps to create healthy students. This unique combination provides for transformative professional development that builds physical and academic change in classrooms in a meaningful way. Teachers will not only leave with dozens of immediately usable strategies for K-12 classrooms across all disciplines, they will gain a more focused understanding of how the brain learns and a working knowledge of a 6-part theoretical framework for using movement in order to raise student achievement.
