Event Description:
Presenter: Jeri Kraver

When did learning become such a drag? Many educational researchers suggest that entrance into 7th grade signals the death knell for student engagement. But it does not have to be so. Fun is suddenly a four-letter word.

No matter what your content area, there are a number of quality activities that encourage creative thinking and learning. And they are fun. Know this: fun activities and challenging learning are not antithetical. Fun does not mean easy. Good teachers have a quiver filled with activities designed to surprise and delight students.

This session will share some, but you must bring with you the following: (1) a short reading assignment from a class you will be teaching or with which you will be working, and (2) a mind opened to the notion that learning can, should, no, it must be, fun.

Intended for UNC graduate teaching assistants. Please RSVP at
