Turn down the boredom and turn up the learning! Many students are bored in school. Not only do they get bored once in a while - they are so bored, or so frequently bored, that it influences their learning, health, and well-being. In this book, the authors go to battle against boredom - and they invite you to join in. Based on the best and latest knowledge about learning and boredom, you get dozens of strategies and tools to make an effort against boredom at your school and in your own teaching. The book contains 90 exercises aimed at students and teachers, which can be done with individual students, with classes, with a year group, in a teaching team, or at the school level. The Battle Against Boredom is written for teachers and educational staff in school and in youth education. It can also be usefully read by school principals, school consultants, school psychologists, and student counselors.
The book's four authors Louise Tidmand, Nadia Holmgren, Nanna Paarup and Mette Marie Ledertoug have a background in psychological and educational sciences and a foundation in positive psychology. They are passionate about creating optimal learning and well-being for both children and adults, and have therefore joined forces to fight boredom.
