Michelle A. Fleming is a former elementary and middle school teacher and is now assistant professor of science and mathematics education at Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio. Joy is one of those words that is hard to define, although we know it when we see it. Joy is a word heard occasionally in television commercials, but generally not in the course of our daily conversations.
About This Book
With the current emphasis on standardized testing, data, and accountability, joy is rarely part of the professional discourse in schools. But it is important, and joy in learning even more so. From kindergarten until graduation from high school, a child in the United States spends more than 11, hours in school. Over the same timespan, the average teacher will have spent more than 15, hours teaching.
Can you imagine how dismal this would be if joy were completely absent from the classroom environment? Thankfully, joy is not absent from our schools. Eric fondly remembers his own experience as a student in a middle school science class, where the smallest person in class lifted the heaviest load using a pulley system and in which he learned about energy and power by sprinting up the stadium steps.
Davis, the teacher, presented challenges to his students, who were expected to work together to figure out how to apply the science. Brunsell, Eric and Michelle A.

Humor is an icebreaker: Humor breaks down barriers in the classroom. It removes the distance between instructor and student and creates an environment where students feel comfortable and will contribute. Humor anchors learning: Studies have shown students are more likely to remember material when it is presented with humor. It humanizes us to students and actually makes us more accessible to them.

Know your popular culture: Most undergraduate students live in a different world form the one we live in. Knowing a little bit about what they are watching, reading and talking about allows you to incorporate entertainment value into your classroom content. Make it a game: Incorporating games into instruction changes the flavor and feel of the classroom drastically. Place students in teams and have them compete against each other. Time them. In this book, Eric Brunsell and Michelle A.
Engaging Minds in Science and Math Classrooms: The Surprising Power of Joy
Fleming show you how to apply the joyful learning framework introduced in Engaging Minds in the Classroom to instruction in science and mathematics. Acknowledging that many students--particularly girls and students of color--do not see themselves as mathematicians and scientists, the authors provide a series of suggested activities that are aligned with standards and high expectations to engage and motivate all learners.
Given the current focus on encouraging students to pursue science, technology, engineering, and mathematics STEM studies, this book is a welcome addition to every teacher's reference collection.
