One important aspect of Applied Behavior Analysis is understanding motivation. When I am making choices for what and how to teach my students, I am always seeking high interest materials that will grab the student’s attention and make them more available for learning. Each week I’ll share some of my favorite lesson plans and resources that have come my way.
Amazing Animals You Never Knew Existed – These stunning photos appeal to several of my students who love animals. It’s also a great tool for getting kids talking about features of animals and the potential functions of those features.
Looks Like Music – Watch these robots turn colored scribbles into music. I’m hoping that this installation makes it’s way to New York so I can do some scribbling myself. You can see more of Yuri Suzuki’s work here.
Artistic Crosswalks – The city of Baltimore is making an effort to increase the amount of art in public spaces. It’s such a unique way to use a space everyone is familiar with. What would your students create in a crosswalk?
