In Engaged Learning, Richard VanDeWeghe looks at instructional practices through the lens of 'wholesight,' a term used by Parker Palmer.áA 'wholesight' perspective encourages a brain- and heart-based method that can generate compelling, engaged learning experiences, spark student excitement, and increase retention of new information. The author explores this engaged learning approach, examines specific teaching behaviors, and provides recommendations for practical applications using examples taken from English/language arts, science, math, and social studies. Offering vignettes from elementary teachers and students at all grade levels, this illuminating book helps educators look at teaching and learning in new ways and redefine their practice through an exploration of questions such as: What makes students excited about learning and what makes them disaffected or only marginally involved? What do 'flow experiences' have to teach us about the nature of engaged learning? How can we plan our teaching based on a deep understanding of student minds and hearts that are truly engaged in learning? What do typical classroom activities such as reading and discussing look like when they are guided by mind- and heart-based engagement theory?
