Engage students as true partners in learning
Instead of disruptions, avoidance, and withdrawal, your learners could be participating, investing, and driving their learning experience. It’s time to reimagine student engagement!
Focused around three essential goals, Reimagining Student Engagement develops a new vocabulary for real classrooms, proposes an engagement model positioning students as active partners in the learning process, and embeds the concept of engagement into the teaching and learning process. Inside you’ll find:
- Reflection prompts that connect ideas to experiences
- Vignettes illustrating common conceptions of engagement as well as challenges
- Case studies showcasing real teachers using engagement strategies with learners
- Practical classroom strategies and tips for application
When you reimagine student engagement, you’ll see your students as true agents of their own learning and provide them with the motivational resources that fuel collaboration and school success.
