WHOLE BRAIN TEACHING how to,,,, MIDDLE SCHOOL... This video of Sean Kavanaugh shows the introduction of class-yes, the 5 rules, and teach-okay for a Denver 8th grade science class. The students were not coached prior to the video and did not practice. This is WBT in its most raw, inner city form. For 1000s of pages of free downloads go to WholeBrainTeaching.com
Snowball Fight...kids write 3 things about themselves on a sheet of white paper. They do not write their names on the paper. Wad it up and on your command, have a "snowball" (or baseball) fight. At the end of 1 minute, each student grabs the nearest snowball and tries to guess who wrote it. Would be great at the beginning of the year!
