Jossey Bass English Brainstormers Ready-To-Use Games And Activities

The 181 entertaining activities in English Brainstormers! will make your students’ time in
the classroom informative, enjoyable, and entertaining. Students will look forward to these
creative, ready-to-use, classroom-tested activities. These learning activities can function as
introductions, reinforcements, or homework assignments. They can be used as individual,
group, or whole-class activities. Many of these activities will serve as time-fillers or extracredit
assignments. Formatted as crosswords, word finds, riddles, magic squares, word
generators, jumbles, and more, these learning activities will motivate your students to think
more astutely and want to do their best in the process.
The resource is divided into seven sections, as follows:
• Section One, “This Is Not Your Grandma’s Grammar,” includes 29 activities designed
to review and reinforce parts of speech, verbals, phrases, clauses, sentences, spelling,
diction, syntax, mechanics, and plurals.
• Vocabulary, prefixes, roots, suffixes, word construction, synonyms, antonyms, word
and phrase etymologies, and word recognition comprise the 29 activities in Section
Two, “Playing with Words.” Students will become more word curious, “word wise,”
and more confident in their everyday writing and speech.
• The 26 activities in the third section, “Getting Set for the Standards,” will help your
students become more versatile and intelligent learners and test-takers. These
activities include work with synonyms, quotes, topic sentences, essays, word
expressions, spelling, vocabulary, the cloze method of reading, and mechanics.
Students will also perform tasks similar to those found on typical standardized tests.
• In the fourth section, “Really Writing and Really Discussing,” students will work on
the 24 activities that include poetry interpretation, literary and character analysis,
creative thinking, idioms, expository writing, creative story writing, and discussion.
Here they will compare their views on many interesting topics and issues. An
examination of the techniques and styles of various writers is also found in this
section.
• Section Five, “Critical Thinking Is Critical!” presents 25 activities designed to
improve students’ critical-thinking skills. Exercises involving word origins, word
play, spoonerisms, imagination, logic application, character analysis, examining
evidence, associative thinking, creative thinking, and other interesting real-world
applications are found within this section.
• The sixth section, “Researching and Remembering,” incorporates many of the
concepts and tasks necessary to write reports and deliver speeches on various topics.
Grouping pieces of biographical, literary, historical, or geographical information,
researching elements of the English language, comparing and contrasting different
literary genres, working with quotations, finding information about famous people,
and assessing a literary situation are just some of the 23 games and activities that
your students will enjoy here.
• “You Are Special!” is the concluding section. Many of these 25 activities focus on the
students and the world around them. Whether it is a personal inventory exercise, a
descriptive personal writing, an autobiographical sketch, a “most important
moments” list, an evaluation of various literary characters, a personal decisionmaking
activity, or a look at what the students think about themselves and others,
these activities are designed to make your students think more maturely and
insightfully as they assess the world around them.
It was William Butler Yeats who said, “Education is not filling a pail, but lighting a fire.”
You will light that fire, and your students will be filled with enthusiasm as they do these
activities. I know. My students do. Yours will, too. Enjoy!
