1. Put your technology away! You are about to be engaged. 2. Pick up a white board and marker. Take them back to your seat with you. 3. Using your marker, draw four equal parts on your board like this example. 4. Give each box a small number 1-4 in the top left corner. Hold up your board when you are finished and sit quietly.
You have 45 seconds to write about a fun time in your life that you’d like to revisit in box #1. When you hear the music start playing, mix around the room quietly until the music stops. Begin writing!
Pair up with the person closest to you and give them a high five. If you haven’t found a partner raise your hand to find someone to share with.
I am going to give you some “think time” on this next one. Question 2: What do you want your students to achieve this year? When you hear me clap my hands, begin writing your answer. You have 45 seconds.
Think about how education has changed. When I snap my fingers, begin writing in box #3. Stop writing when you hear the music begin.
In box #4 you will write one complete sentence for each of the following: a)about your family b)what you like to do in your free time c)something unique about you You may have some “think time”. Listen for my cues.

Bay District wants you to ask yourself this… 1)Do you want your students to be more engaged in class? 2)Do you want your students to have higher test scores? 3)Do you want to improve your students’ self- esteem?
Cooperative learning results in low kids making gains. EVERYONE is engaged-closing the gap. Why is engagement such a hot topic? Turn to someone next to you and respond.
We have a choice. We can call on one or two students in the same amount of time we can call on everyone. ~Dr. Spencer Kagan
At this time, please read pages 17 and 18 in your hand-out to yourself. When you are finished, hold your paper in the air without disturbing anyone. Hold it high and leave it there.
Quickly and quietly pair up with someone you haven’t worked with today. Take turns reading page 26 to one another. When you are finished, take turns sharing and listening about the page you just read.
