We spent the last five years testing and tuning Embody Learning, working with teachers and students in our pursuit of a model that will have an impact on millions of students in every classroom in YOUR classroom immediately.
With Embody Learning, student are engaged and excited and there is a marked increase in the test score vocabulary ranking.
High School English teacher, Chad B.
Within 10 minutes, students started sharing at an incredibly personal level. They shared stories about themselves I had never heard. They started working with a renewed sense of energy and purpose.
High School Career Director, Eve R
As students present, their teacher can see which students understand and which don't. She noted a significant increase in understanding, across the curriculum, through using Embody Learning protocols.
High School Math Teacher, Dawn P.
We have seen a remarkable improvement in students' comprehension of vocabulary and grammar. After using the Embody Learning protocol of "wording" we learned in classroom demonstrations and professional developments, every student except two got 100 percent on their quiz. It has become routine in his classroom.
High School Humanities Teacher, Brett G.
I will be doing this as often as possible in all classes! Working with Embody Learning was a transformative experience! My students were highly engaged every day, and their knowledge of certain math concepts deepened with every movement. Having the students think about math by using their bodies was interesting and a great way to internalize the math.
H.S. Math Teacher, K.C.E.
I have seen major changes in student engagement and academic grades. For example in one content unit I observed a student who, visibly, transformed his knowledge base from non-comprehension to understanding. Through the use of Embody Learning protocols, he went from failing the class to As and Bs.
Middle School Social Studies, Marisol B.
Having children engage in physical expression of words helps them be excited about new words and to make connections. Those connections make it easier for students to be engaged when they actively retell the story.
Preschool Guide discussion learning skills,
Watching the children talk about their emotions and using the (Embody Learning) strategy to control their emotions. I will keep using them. The children love them and are still making them.
Body language is as important as spoken language and vital to all my lessons in this training. Students enjoy using their bodies and their natural ability to create unique expressions of words and stories.
I would previously not have challenged my students this way. I learned my children not only rose to the challenge, but excelled at it.
Embody Learning is a versatile tool that can be used to gain understanding about how children see the world; it engages and maintains the attention of young children.
I believe Embody Learning provides AMAZING strategies to help students. I think it could be extremely helpful teaching syllables and even language for students who have difficulty communicating.
I use Embody Learning to enhance vocabulary and for quick assessments. And to make teaching more interactive.
I noticed an incredible increase in not only vocabulary retention and test scores, but most importantly the students took ownership of the words, and processes and the level of enjoyment they had with the vocabulary lessons.
Fifth grade math teacher,
Once I began using Embody Learning, students were more fully engaged and took pride in their work as it was something they had to perform in front of the whole class.
Seventh grade social studies teacher,
My students are struggling with writing and these concepts should lead to some breakthroughs.
It results in a passion for creative thinking.
More critical thinking, making connections across curriculum, and activating variousparts of the brain.
Middle School Teacher,
I like the freedom if provides to apply ideas to common core application details.
