Regardless of our own various teaching styles, we all aim to engage students in meaningful learning. But active learning can be scary—What if I'm not "creative"? What kind of time will it take to prepare? What happens if students get out of hand? Can I handle it? Worksheet Busters are easy, effective activity frameworks that transform ordinary worksheets into engaging, meaningful learning experiences. Learn several of these easy-to-replicate activities and how to design your own Worksheet Busters to engage students within your own teaching style and content.
