6 What Does Student Engagement Look Like in the Classroom? (brainstorm ideas)
7 Definition of Student Engagement Student Engagement is defined as the continuous involvement of the student in the academic learning by being active participants. This requires teachers to insist on their involvement.
8 QUOTE“Too often students are relegated to a passive role, listening and observing to glean the main lesson points while the teacher strives to help them comprehend by using visual aides and a listener-friendly delivery.”Kinsella, 1997, page 51

12 Day 2-Pair Share Activity Get with a partner and share what technique you chose and how it worked in the classroom.Share with the group
13 What Research Says….Newman (1989) “engagement is the student’s psychological investment in learning comprehending, and mastering knowledge skills” …….therefore, all teachers must:- Plan in advance the student engagement strategies to engage all students in all activities (how to ask questions so all students will respond).- Implement the plan to engage all students during the lesson.
14 Second Attribute of Student Engagement Directs all of the students to participate in the learning at the same time.*When using T4S Program we are looking for 85 percent or more of the students to be engaged at the same time and throughout the academic learning.
15 Attributes of Student Engagement Direct students to be engaged in the academic learning.Covert – Something you cannot observe(Ex: Read the passage, Think about the answer)Overt – Something you can observe.(Ex: On your whiteboards write the answer, read chorally the passage, in your journal write down the steps.)All participation by all students at the same time.Mandatory throughout the lesson.Based on T4S looking for 85% participation throughout the lesson.
16 Examples of NOT Directing all Students to Participate at the Same Time The teacher has students raise their hands if they know the answer.The teacher has one student come to the board to create a picture of the learning.The teacher has one student repeat the answer.Students sit and wait for the teacher to take attendance.The student allows students to shout out answers to problem 5.As the teacher is lecturing, students sit and look at the teacher.
17 Examples of Directing ALL Students to Participate at the Same Time The teacher directs all students to write the answer to the question in one minute.The teacher directs all students to create a picture of the learning in two minutes.The teacher directs all students to chorally respond to repeat an answer.The teacher directs all students to solve the problem that is written on the board as she takes attendance.The teacher directs all student to think of an answer to problem 5.
