Student engagement leads to and increases student achievement. Whether in a brick and mortar or virtual setting, the engagement of students is a key to learning. This course will draw upon the works of Dr. Randy Sprick (Safe & Civil Schools), Dr. Anita Archer (Explicit Instruction), Jim Knight (University of Kansas Coaching Project) and John Hattie (Visible Learning) to provide practical strategies to measure and improve student engagement.
Participants will be expected to use video of their own classrooms (in person or virtual) for their own reflections, data collection and improvement. Existing effective practices of participants will be validated, and doors of improvement opportunities opened. This 6-part series will focus on YOU and YOUR CLASSROOM, using self-reflection and collaborative conversations to develop practical and sustainable routines that impact your students’ learning.
- Review best research-based practice for classroom management
- Be able to define and measure student engagement
- Conduct a self-assessment and self-reflection on their own instruction
