Tired of the using the same old graphic organizers? Why not shake things up a bit, and get your students out of their seats and into Kinesthetic Word Webs? Kinesthetic Word Webs energize students; reinforce connections between main ideas and related examples, definitions, or details; encourage high levels of thinking; and require justification of student thinking. Roth explains how the brain learns and how it changes, and how teachers can challenge traditional instruction to promote accurate and efficient recall. The Kinesthetic Word Web offers a way for teachers to differentiate instruction, implement formative assessment, and invoke higher order thinking all in one fun strategy.
