Engagement Students who are engaged in their work are energized by four goals—success, curiosity, originality, and satisfying relationships. ― Richard Strong, Harvey F. Silver and Amy Robinson “ ”
Goals and Needs: The SCORE People who are engaged in their work are driven by four essential goals, each of which satisfies a particular human need: Success (the need for mastery) Curiosity (the need for understanding) Originality (the need for self-expression) Relationships (the need for involvement with others)
Knowing the SCORE Four important questions that teachers must ask themselves in order to “score” the level of engagement in their classrooms. 1.Under what conditions are students most likely to feel that they can be successful? 2.When are students most likely to become curious? 3.How can we help students satisfy their natural drive toward self-expression? 4.How can we motivate students to learn by using their natural desire to create and foster good peer relationships?
Convincing Kids They Can Succeed Before we can use success to motivate our students to produce high- quality work, we must meet three conditions: 1.We must clearly articulate the criteria for success and provide clear, immediate, and constructive feedback. 2.We must show students that the skills they need to be successful are within their grasp by clearly and systematically modeling these skills. 3.We must help them see success as a valuable aspect of their personalities.
Arousing Curiosity Students want and need work that stimulates their curiosity and awakens their desire for deep understanding. ― Richard Strong, Harvey F. Silver and Amy Robinson “ ”
