Icebreakers that Rock

Icebreakers that Rock | Teaching pedagogy and strategies | Scoop.it
In my own classrooms, with middle school, high school, and college students, I have played all three of these games with great success. What I like about all of them is that they get students talking, but require very little social risk. Each activity supplies students with real topics to talk about, topics that actually help students get to know each other, without forcing anyone to reveal anything too personal.

Each of these will likely sound familiar to you, although the names may not be exactly what you’ve known them as. I should add that I take no credit for inventing these games. I have no idea where I picked them up, but they are not original to me.

PBL, Kazakhstan, and Global Success Skills

PBL, Kazakhstan, and Global Success Skills | Teaching pedagogy and strategies | Scoop.it
Energy use is an important issue in Michigan where I live. But these student presentations happened in Astana, the capital city of Kazakhstan. The winters are sub-zero on the Celsius scale, similar to Bismarck, North Dakota. Ice lies thickly on the roads from snow buildup. The city is heated centrally from a major coal plant. As Astana rapidly grows, its energy supply lags behind increasing demand in the city and the country as a whole. The students seemed aware of this as they reported their findings. 

Along with the other teachers that I worked with, I knew that this Project-Based Learning (PBL) experience was the start of something special. There's an adage that if one visits another country, their understanding of themselves and their own country will change their perspective. Having visited several countries, I’ve experienced this truism, yet I could not know the mutually beneficial effect that would occur from collaborating with the educators of KATEV in Astana, Kazakhstan.
