Open to: All teachers.
Opportunity at a Glance: In this learning cycle we’ll offer various resources to enhance engagement in the classroom. In order to support and sustain engagement in the classroom, students and teachers alike benefit from a shared understanding of what engagement looks like. In this 40-minute professional learning activity, “Creating a shared understanding of intellectual engagement,” you will develop a shared definition of rigorous instruction and intellectual engagement.
As a reminder, teachers have access to 70 Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development (ASCD) eBook titles. Some titles that connect to building a culture for learning include:
- Real Engagement: How Do I Help My Students become Motivated, Confident, and Self-Directed Learners? (Book 46, p. 22): Examine concrete strategies for improving classroom assignments, assessments, and environments to create learning experiences that are rigorous, meaningful, and rewarding for your students and yourself.
- Real-World Projects: How Do I Design Relevant and Engaging Learning Experiences? (Book 47, p. 22): Explore how real-word projects engage and motivate students while teaching rigorous, standards-aligned skills and content.
