Active Participation DVDs can be used both to introduce teaching staff to active engagement strategies and to serve periodically as a systematic review of engagement strategies for staff who are familiar with the concepts, but need a quick refresher.
Show the DVD on a large screen for whole-staff inservice or on a single computer for individual or small-group study sessions. Dr. Archer's presentations are equally as effective!
Please note that this DVD set is for secondary grades 6-12. There is another version that is tailored to elementary-level classrooms.

—Ann Watanabe and Karen Akiyama-Paik,
I have seen firsthand the positive impact of Anita's Active Participation. The changes that teachers make in their delivery of instruction not only benefit the students, but empower teachers to be even more effective and amazing educators. I believe her strategies have the power to change the way teachers teach and students learn.
